Perfect for outdoor applications: Western Red Cedar

posted in: Wood | 0

Despite its name, western red cedar is not a cedar but a cypress (Cupressaceae). Nevertheless, the western red cedar (Thuja plicata) is a wood species with great properties for several outdoor applications.

Western red cedar offers a high durability in addition to great machinability which makes it one of the leading wood species in the cladding / facade area. Next to the intense red color also the typical, pleasant scent of WRC makes this wood species unique.

For many years already, Jacob Jürgensen has been importing sawn timber out of western red cedar from the west coast of Canada to the European market. We are proud of our long-lasting relationships with our partner sawmills and can offer various sizes and qualities.

Next to the typical WRC sizes as 1”, 7/4” or 2” x 4/6/8/10/12” (KD or green) we also offer bigger dimensions as 4×4/6/8/10/12” in the standard export grades #2Clr&Btr as well as #4Clear.

Mixed container loads in different sizes are our special strength.
