Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata) is renowned for its natural beauty and outstanding physical properties that make it one of the world’s most unique softwood species. This exceptionally beautiful wood has natural colouring in mellow ambers, reddish cinnamons and rich sienna browns. Its warm colouring is complemented by a uniform, fine-grained texture with a satin lustre. The hallmark characteristics of Western Red Cedar and its natural durability can be seen in working examples that still exist from well over 100 years ago.
Western Red Cedar grows on the western edge of the coastal mountains from Southern Alaska to Northern California.
Forestry practices are guided by the internationally recognised sustainable forest management system elements of ISO 14001. These high standards of sustainable forestry are audited by third party inspection agencies to insure compliance with the certification standards.

Termites prefer food sources other than Western Red Cedar, only in extreme instances will they attempt to consume WRC fibre. Our Doors use preventative treatments to ensure consistent resistance to attack.
The open cell structure of Western Red Cedar has demonstrated an ability to absorb and dissipate sound energy.
Western Red Cedar has a fine, straight grain and uniform texture that make it easy to cut, saw and nail with common tools. These features also contribute to its ability to be planed to a smooth surface or profiled to any pattern. Cedar’s freedom from pitch and resin make it an excellent base for all types of paints and stains.
The lack of pitch and resin allows Western Red Cedar to hold glue bonds from a wide range of adhesives.
