Ideal for projects with an ecological focus, western red cedar is responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year. For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forest will exist in perpetuity.
The result of this harvesting process is that western red cedar has minimal impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is biodegradable.
Added to this, western red cedar of offers low density and shrinkage factors and exceptional thermal insulation value. Its natural preservatives resist moisture, decay and insect damage.
