Western Red Cedar is a unique and prestigious softwood with outstanding physical characteristics. It offers a rare combination of aesthetic appeal and durability, thanks to its natural decay-resistant composition. Western Red Cedar's superior dimensional stability means that, when properly installed and maintained, project components are likely to stay straight and flat and resist warping and cupping - season after season. In addition, cedar is easy to cut, saw and nail with common tools.
