Western Red Cedar
The Midwest United States is home to three types of soft woods: Cedar, Redwood and Cypress. Western Red Cedar being the most abundant of these softwoods.
Western Red Cedar has one of the longest life spans of any of the North American softwoods. It produces long lengths of timber with true straight grain. It is free from pitch and it's heartwood has natural decay resistance along with repelling termites and carpenter ants.
