Hi

I have read on several occasions  that although redwood appears on the safe list of woods, it  is high in toxins, and has been associated with rashes. The dust of redwood has also been associated with lung and eye disorders and it can suppress the immune system. Has anyone else heard anything about Redwood?

Reading up on something or what people say is like chineese whispers one states something by the time it reaches the 10th person its a completly differrent story, until you have tried something for your self dont make assumptions.Click and drag me down to the editor


We have now been keeping tortoises for several years and have not had a problem with any of our tortoises no health problems i.e breathing, irritation of skin or any eye disorders. We have 10+ tortoises all living in these tables and not had a problem and in the whole time we have kept tortoises never had to visit the vets ---- so there is your answer.


The dust of redwood....... what nonsense you have a kitchen worktop or a wooden table or a side board it stands there for years does not create dust, dust may settle on these surfaces but dust does not create from these materials UNLESS you put a chain saw through it then this will create dust.
