Yellow cedar wood is more available in Canada and the US than it has been in past years. Historically, it has been underharvested in BC and the largest volume of it was shipped to Japan. Recently North America has seen better and more consistent availability of yellow cedar.

This trend is likely to continue. The shift in harvesting in coastal BC now favors more yellow cedar. Simultaneously, there is a decreased demand for yellow cypress lumber in Japan. This shift is a result of harvesting in Japan, where native species planted after WWII have matured.

Superior Rot Resistance and Strength for Exceptional Exterior Applications

Yellow cedar is great for exterior applications as it’s heartwood has high rot resistance qualities. It is also very strong, smooth and produces almost no splinters. This makes it a superior softwood decking species.
