Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar is a Canadian imported Timber and is known for being one of the most durable woods in the world and is extremely popular and just as highly sought after.

The wood is good for general construction work and has hidden benefits including an aromatic fragrance that can last on the wood for extended period of time and contains a preservative making it naturally resistant to fungal attack. It can be used to create a number of external fixtures such as fence panels and cladding and even more specific purposes such as the base for hot tubs.
The woods uses also derive from the heritage of where it is grown, extending its purposes to objects such as canoes and even instruments. We provide Western Red Cedar in standard lengths of timber as well as some pre-constructed fixtures.
