The best known and most widely used of the West Coast Cedars is the Western Red Cedar. It has the most beautiful color variation, has a refreshing aroma, and is dry rot resistant. Because it is the softest wood, it is least hot to sit on or lean against.
Clear Western Hemlock is an excellent wood for people who have wood allergies - it has no aroma and no resin.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is an exclusive white Cedar with a pungent aroma. It feels almost silky to the touch, and has a beautiful appearance.
Our California Redwood is 100% vertical grain (tight grain to prevent raising and slivering in the high heat), is the most fire resistant, most dry rot resistant, most termite resistant, and does not warp.
