Answer: 
Generally, it is not a great idea to allow this to dry out prior to installation because this can increase the chances of splitting & cracking when you go to fasten the board in place, unless you want to pre-drill all the fastener holes. "Wet/Green" wood will have a far less likelihood of cracking when fastening. When you will, most likely, experience with wet/green wood once dried is shrinkage. Boards Read More
Generally, it is not a great idea to allow this to dry out prior to installation because this can increase the chances of splitting & cracking when you go to fasten the board in place, unless you want to pre-drill all the fastener holes. "Wet/Green" wood will have a far less likelihood of cracking when fastening. When you will, most likely, experience with wet/green wood once dried is shrinkage. Boards that were once tight together with each other (side-by-side) may have a slight gap between them.
The length of time it will take for a board to dry out depends on the temp, humidity & exposure to sunlight. The surface will, generally, dry out relatively fast thus allowing for finishing of the boards to occur quickly. Read Less

Answer: 
No, it's all natural red cedar. After you buy it just let it dry out before you use it as it will shrink a little. Great insect and rot resistant wood for the price!

Will this warp? I just got home and some of the slats are moist to touch. Should I wait to paint them or paint them immediately.

Answer: 
If you are going to nail it together I would wait for it to dry out and build with it. It will warp a little but not like pressure treated!

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great value I would dif recommend these boards, they look real good. I'm not finished with the fence in picture but very happy with how they look March 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cedar for a MODERN exterior wall over concrete blocks This wood really stands out and makes my entire yard more vibrant. I added a cedar stain to bring out the color in the wood and for further protection from the elements. People have stopped just to tell me how much they love the look of the wood. It has made an ugly, gray, concrete block wall look beautiful. March 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great and smells nice too! The wood is very sturdy and has wonderful grain. We used it to cover pipes and electrical while finishing our basement. We liked the wood so much we created an accent wall too. December 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by You get what you pay for. I purchased online and picked up in store for the convenience. I bought 10% more than I needed expecting that some of the boards would not meet my standards. I had to return more than 25% of them and buy more in order to finish the job. The bad ones were either cracked, warped, bent, or moldy. In addition, some of the boards varied in thickness from one side to the other (same board.) Do yourself a favor, if you're building your own fence, buy in store and select them yourself. Even out of those I selected myself, some of them warped or cracked before I had a chance to put them up. I recommend only if you select your own. Nice looking fence for cost. November 13, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value I thought they looked a little cheap but once installed they looked real good. I backed them with 3 cedar 2x4 rails and also made a double gate out of them. For cedar in the Northeast, they were readily available, reasonably priced, and even though they were only 5/8" thick, I'd use them again because of their value. December 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cedar Picket Found the pickets to be consistent throughout the bunch I bought. Wood was very green, though I found a small percentage were on the dry side. A few at the store did have cracks or major defects but that percentage was low. Hope it holds up well. I cut them down to size/shape for use in building a planter box so I was a little more specific in my board needs while searching through the stock at my local H.D. store. Sands & shapes easy for those considering use other than fence pickets; FYI. May 14, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Quality For the price they are good for new or repairing existing fence. Will be more durable when stained or painted. March 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It lloks great and has no holes in the wood!! This makes a great privacy fence. My husband is doubling the boards for privacy. It looks like the kind that will last and last and always look good!! The price is the best price that we saw anywhere else, but I wish that it cost a lot less for as much as we need. April 24, 2012
