WESTERN RED CEDAR

Western red cedar occurs at low-to-mid elevations along the coast, in mild, damp climates. It is relatively straight-grained, with colours ranging from pinkish- or reddish-brown to a warm straw colour. It is attractive and durable, and is often used for exterior siding or cladding, roof shingles and decking, as well as for interior projects such as panelling, doors, windows, and mouldings.
