The distinctive color of redwood is due—in part, at least—to the nature of its extractive components. The excellent durability of redwood heartwood also is attributed to the fungicidal properties of its extractives. However, one of the problems associated with the manufacture of redwood lumber is the chemical seasoning stain resulting from the chemical nature of some of the extractives.
