Introducing Certigrade® Yellow Cedar

Yellow Cedar is one of the world’s most durable woods and its fine straight grain structure makes it a great wood species for carving, joinery and carpentry.

It grows along the Pacific coast of North America, from Alaska to Oregon, and is approved under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification. Historically used to make totem poles and canoes, yellow cedar nowadays has applications for roof and wall shingles as well as decking, garden furniture, flooring and cladding, stairs and landscaping.

Yellow cedar, which has a uniform pale yellow colour when new, will weather to a uniform light silver grey patina and is heavier and denser than Western Red Cedar. 

"We are committed to providing the highest quality and sustainably sourced speciality timbers for private and commercial projects.

Yellow cedar has exceptional longevity, is economical and hardwearing. It’s a beautiful species with excellent performance characteristics, and is highly regarded by architects and those with specialist knowledge, particularly in the US, Canada and Japan.

We like to lead where others follow, and we think there is every reason our customers will love it."
