2013 International Wood Culture Symposium on Taxodiaceae

Abstract: Sequoia sempervirens (Taxodiaceae s.s.; Cuppressaceae s.l.) is native to a small Pacific coastal region of northern California and southern Oregon (USA). The genus is monotypic and includes the tallest trees in the world. The accessibility of the terrain where the coastal redwoods occur initiated a timber industry after the California gold rush was in full swing.Redwood lumber is economically important for the volume of timber per tree, its resistance to termites and fungi, as well as its fire resistance properties. Most of the old growth forests were decimated after a century of intensive logging. The remnant old growth patches are protected in National and State Park systems scattered across the original range of the species. However, logging operations continue on a much smaller scale than in the past, and redwoodlumber continues to be valued not only for the timber industry, but also for its aesthetic properties for fine woodworking, sculpture, and woodturning.
