Legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the forests of British Columbia, Canada. Our Western Red Cedar offers attractive appearance, superior performance and resistance to weather. Properly finished and maintained, Cedar will deliver decades of trouble free service.
The Sapwood of Western Red Cedar is narrow and white in colour, the heartwood often displays a marked variation in colour. Boards from the centre of the log may be a dark chocolate-brown, changing to salmon pink nearer the sapwood, the timber may be variegated with alternate dark and light zones.
After drying and exposure to the elements the red / pink tones are lost and the timber weathers down to a silver-grey colour.
The eventual colour can depend upon its environment. This weathered appearance is often purposely sought after.
