Order Western Red Cedar from McIlvain: Your Wholesale Lumber Dealer
Western Red Cedar is a domestic softwood native to the western coast of the United States and Canada. This species is noted for its long, straight grain, superior degree of strength, and low density. Its natural characteristics make the wood especially useful for shingles and have therefore earned Western Red Cedar the nickname of "shingle wood."
Western Red Cedar is used extensively in the production of cedar shingles, exterior siding and trim, outdoor furniture and structure, decking, and even interior millwork and trim for customers aiming for a rustic look. Its weather resistance allows for direct contact with the ground, so it is often also used for fence posts and garden pergolas, sheds, and trellis applications.
