Western Red Cedar (Canadian)

The beautiful reddish brown tones of Western Red Cedar make this timber a perennial favourite with designers and architects worldwide. It’s qualities of durability, dimensional stability and it’s elegant appearance are perfectly suited to all outdoor applications where an upmarket look is required. The soft red-brown timber has a tight, straight grain and few knots. It is valued for its distinct appearance, aroma, and its high natural resistance to decay. Due to its light weight—390 to 400 kg/m3 (24 to 25 lb/cu ft) dried, it can be used to clad large buildings without adding substantially to ground stress. Although light weight it is very long lasting and will provide many years of service with or without coating.
