Redwood Decking is a Good Choice for the Environment
Snapshot: Building products produce emissions throughout their lifespan, from harvest and manufacturing to use and final disposal.

Life-cycle assessments help compares the environmental impacts of using wood decking versus non-traditional products. Tivoli Gough, USDA Forest Service
