ENCYCLOPEDIA OF WOOD

CEDAR, WESTERN RED

(S)

Botanical Name: Thuja plicata

A grand-sized tree, western red cedar can grow to more than 150 feet in height. It is one of the lightest and most durable softwoods, making it ideal for outdoor use. Its distinct growth ring figure and attractive color also give it significant value for paneling and veneer. Especially knotty pieces are sold as “knotty cedar.” This species is slow to regenerate; if current heavy levels of consumption do not abate, western red cedar could become a rare wood in the 21st Century.

Other Names: Giant arborvitae (U. S.A.); red cedar (Canada); British Columbia red cedar (U. K.); canoe-cedar. Sources: Canada, U. S.A.

Characteristics: Straight grain; coarse texture.

Uses: Outdoor furniture, boat building, exterior millwork. Workability: Generally good; keep cutters sharp. Finishing: Accepts finishes well.

Weight: 23 Ib./cu. ft.

Price: Moderate.
