Yellow Cedar Wood

The yellow cedar woods are one of the unique woods grown in the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia (B.C.), on the west coast of Canada. The species grows so slow that it takes more than 200 years to be useful for its applications. It is a truly remarkable tree.

While other species of Canadian woods are used for doors and windows, Yellow Cedar has some top advantages that makes it an ideal solution for interior decor.  It can also be used as an ideal component of green buildings. 

Let’s see some of the potential reasons that make Yellow Cedar stand out. 

Durability at its peak

Yellow cedar wood is tough and durable in nature. Its natural oil extraction makes it highly insect and rot resistant. Its highly insect resistance makes yellow cedar an ideal choice for external doors and windows that are prone to moisture and harsh weather conditions.
