Efforts are now made to harvest and protect the large & magnificent redwood trees which were once seen in the west coast rain forests of the nation. Redwood Hot Tubs are still available, but in limited numbers that are normally made from small sized farmed varieties.
The artificially grown or cultured Red Woods are not as efficient as their giant parental species. The magnificent and giant redwood trees were once perfect for construction of hot tubs. They can resist decay and rot due to a very small and firm ring pattern. However, the smaller harvested redwood trees lack these properties and are proven to be less efficient in the long run. With large ring structure, they are more likely to decay fast. The hot tub industry has therefore switched to other alternative material for giving
