Western Red Cedar
The earliest residents of the Pacific Northwest called it the "Tree of Life". And for all the centuries since, Western Red Cedar has been a vital part of our outdoor lifestyle.
Cedar is a living legend for its "grown-in-the-wood" resistance to moisture, decay and insect damage. Cedar also has exceptional dimensional stability. It lays flat, stays straight, retains fasteners and provides a firm base for many types of stains and paints.
Dutiful, yes. But beautiful, too. With its richness of grain, texture and color, Cedar offers a timeless complement to any architectural style, from traditional to contemporary. Put Nature on your side with Today's Cedar and enjoy the lasting prestige that imitators can only hint at.
Western Red Cedar contains natural oils that act as preservatives to help the wood resist insect attack and decay. Properly finished and maintained, Western Red Cedar ages gracefully and endures for many years.
Cedar is the preferred material for all outdoor applications that seek visual harmony with the landscape combined with stability and durability: from siding and attic ventilators, patio decking to fences, planters, screens, shelters and garden furniture. Indoors, cedar's dimensional stability makes it perfectly suited to a variety of uses in high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and saunas.
Western Red Cedar should be preservative treated if intended for use in applications where it comes in contact with the ground.
