Western Red Cedar is two times as Dimensionally Stable as most commonly available softwoods. This stability is a result of its low density and shrinkage factors. Although Western Red Cedar has a natural reddish brown hue, it is virtually pitch and resin free, the wood easily accepts a range of finishes. Properly finished, Western Red Cedar will last for decades, even in the harshest of environments.
Western Red Cedar's unique aroma comes from naturally occurring thujaplicins in its heartwood. These compounds resist moisture and are toxic to decay-causing fungi. It is one of the worlds most durable woods, offering a natural resistance to moisture, decay and insects... making it the ideal choice for a surface that is exposed to the sun, rain, heat and cold all year round.
