Western Red Cedar is one of the most durable woods available. It comes in long lengths with a straight grain and even texture, and is very easy to work with and finish.
Western Red Cedar is often chosen for its beauty and versatility. It has many indoor uses but is also an exceptional choice for outdoor use, in all types of weather. It is naturally resistant to moisture, insects and decay. It also has double the stability of most common softwoods, meaning that it has significantly more resistance to warping and splitting. Plus, Western Red Cedar exceeds the minimum flame spread and smoke development classifications specified in many building codes, so it can be used without preservative treatment.
