Specie Focus: Western Red Cedar

Specie Focus: Western Red Cedar

Western red cedar is among the most popular wood used today. Apart from its relatively knot free, 'clean' appearance, this softwood has a natural resistance to decay and moisture absorption, meaning it can typically be installed without treatment.

It's also the most stable of the commonly used softwoods, subject to little movement when installed.

Great for cladding

The excellent properties, described above, mean that Cedar is often used for cladding (for our cladding profiles click here) and is a common choice for wooden greenhouses. We have used cedar for many years and in addition to its external performance it is a lovely timber to machine and work with it smells really good too!

An awesome event that you won't want to miss out on!
