Properties Redwood VS Cedar
Californian Redwood is the big bother of Western Red cedar, meaning the trees are of the same family. Redwood has all the same characteristics as cedar but delivers a higher density and subsequently improved stability.
Scion Forestry Research has conducted detailed research on Californian Redwood grown in New Zealand and found it to be as durable and stable as Redwood grown in the US.
Redwood history in New Zealand
The first documented Californian Coastal Redwoods were planted in Rotorua 1901. The grove of Redwood trees was declared a memorial to commemorate New Zealand Forest Service members who died in World War I. But Redwood has a longer history with some plantations dating back to the 1800s. Many old weatherboard homes from that era were made with imported Redwood and they still have the original weatherboards today.
Beyond that the Americans have build houses from Redwood since the first settlers. Interestingly, in Redwood National Park traditional homes of the region's American Indians usually were constructed of planks split from fallen redwoods. These houses were built over pits dug beneath the building, with the space between the pit and the walls forming a natural bench. Many can be still seen today.
