    Sequoias are famous for being resistant to rot both as a living tree and as lumber. Not only are they rot resistant, but also stand up remarkably against insects, fungi, and fire. The trees’ main defense against many of these threats is the presence of tannin, which also give them their red color.

    Black locust and red mulberry are known for being very resistant to rot and decay.  A wide variety of tropical woods are also rot resistant after adapting to a climate with lots of bugs and humidity.
