Product Description

Western Red Cedar

Historically, native peoples of the Pacific Northwest have prized western red cedar for its long lasting qualities and therefore used it for most of their building needs. So if you’re looking for hard evidence of cedar’s inherent ability to withstand the rigors of time and weather, you needn’t look any further than the many Aboriginal cedar artifacts that are still in good condition today.

With its straight grain and uniform texture, western red cedar is among the easiest and most rewarding woods to work with. A consummate professional, WR Cedar also takes fasteners without splitting and is easily sawn and nailed. And since it’s pitch and resin-free, WR Cedar has an amazing ability to hold a wide range of finishes. Plus, Cedar’s low density enhances its insulation value and makes it an easy wood to transport and handle.

Available as rough sawn timber, dressed boards, Weatherboards & Paneling
