HomeDepots cedar fencing and cedar 2x4’s are poor quality. I had to throw out what I purchased and find another source. I’ve tried several times to find quality cedar fencing at HoneDepot. I’ve given up. I spend lots of time on hunched over your shelf looking for straight, good boards. I’ve decided it’s way too much work. I’ve invested lots of time and mi eh into a fence, I can’t use your sub standard product.

Great Product
Wood was solid and straight with minimal defects, most defects were from banding from the shipper. Overall I was happy with the product.
