Grades of Western Red Cedar
Clear Grades: Clear cedar has a limited number of natural characteristics and is specified when appearance of the highest quality is desired. Clear grades of timbers are normally supplied green (unseasoned). When required, seasoning is achieved by air-drying.
Knotty Grades: Knotty cedar presents a more rustic appearance and is typically supplied green (unseasoned) in the appearance and structural grades. When required, seasoning is achieved by air-drying except for grades of Light Framing and Structural Joists and Planks which are available kiln-dried.
Saw Textured: The saw textured surface, obtained during the milling process which uses either circular or band saws, is present on all four sides.
Rougher Headed: The lumber receives its texture from a milling process which uses roughened planer knives. The rough texture is clearly visible on all four sides.
Surfaced Four Sides (S4S): The smooth surface on all four sides presents a uniformly sized product with a high quality appearance. Sizes from 2x4 up to 6x6 are generally available. Larger sizes are produced on special orders.

With all these sizes of timbers in both Knotty and Clear, we can fill any size orders. Our timbers come from Vancouver Island and are a blend of old growth and 2nd growth cedar. A dark, rich red color, they offer beauty andstrength and can be used in many different ways. We see many of them going into the outdoor patio application to offer partial shading pergolas.
We have milling capabilities to dress the product and resize the timber. Small orders can be accommodated.
