Forever Redwood is committed to growing and protecting Redwood Forests by utilizing the proceeds from product sales to fund restoration efforts.
The continuing disappearance of Old-Growth forest habitat contributes to the global decline of biological diversity and is a significant factor in climate change. Restoration forestry reverses these declines by recreating Old-Growth habitats and cooling the earth through the retention of enormous amounts of carbon – a benefit that will last for centuries.
From the Forest, For the Forest since 1995: Forests can be restored back to Old-Growth Again. We are doing it.
Old-Growth Again (OGA) is Forever Redwood’s parent company. OGA was founded to restore and manage forestland in a way that truly allows the forest to flourish over time while yielding a conservative amount of high quality timber to fund the restoration. Working carefully with the forest so that it can contribute economically with the human society around it lessens the daily pressure to replace native forest with farms, encroaching suburbs or ranches. The Forever Redwood furniture line funds the restoration work entirely.
By significantly limiting the amount of wood harvested in all time periods into the future and adhering to many other restoration standards, any previously logged forest can yield wood for human use while adding volume decade by decade as it recreates mature and old-growth trees again. OGA’s practices exceed FSC certification guidelines and it is our hope that our innovative practices will elevate the industry’s standards for forestry management in the future.
OGA is a socially responsible business founded by individuals committed to respectful relations with customers, employees and business partners. Maintaining these standards is critical to attracting and retaining the necessary human and financial resources to maintain our growing contribution to the reversal of global forest degradation and fragmentation.
