Western red cedar wood (Thuja plicata) grows in coastal forests and also in drier interior forests of British Columbia, Washington, Idaho and Montana where they are smaller in stature with a tight knotted growth characteristic. Western red cedar forests are predominantly managed forests, in which  natural regeneration and reforestation programs ensures a perpetual harvest.

A Wood Of Warmth And Beauty

Western Red Cedar is, above all, a wood of exceptional beauty. In its natural, unfinished state, it has a richly textured, tactile grain combined with a palette of warm, mellow, tones ranging from light amber to deep honey brown. No man-made material can duplicate the depth of the cedar's natural luster.

The Gift Of Durability

Western red cedar contains natural oils that acts as preservatives to help the wood resist insect infestation and decay. Cedar is also a dimensionally stable wood that lies flat and stays straight. Properly finished and maintained, Western Red Cedar ages gracefully and endures for many years.

Cedar is the preferred material for all outdoor applications that seek visual harmony with the landscape combined with stability and durability: from siding and patio decking to fences, planters, screens, shelters and garden furniture. Indoors, cedar's dimensional stability makes it perfectly suited to a variety of uses in high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and saunas.

Western Red Cedar should be preservative treated if intended for use in applications where it comes in contact with the ground.
