Top 5 Benefits of Northern White Cedar Products


  1. Longevity

Cedar is a naturally durable wood.  This is the reason people have built barns, fences, etc. with this wood for many years.  Cedar is a wood that can withstand rough weather conditions and keeps a beautiful appearance as it ages.

     2.  Rot & Decay Resistant

Cedar contains organic oils to protect the wood against rot and decay.  This is one of the strongest benefits to this wood type as it enables anything built with this wood to last longer than most other wood products.  The durability of Cedar can double the life of the built product as it not only withstands the brutality of weather, but also the natural weaknesses that arise as the wood ages.

     3.  Easily Treatable

If your design calls for a wide variety of stains or other treatments, Cedar is perfect.  The organic makeup of Cedar enables it to be naturally easy to stain or otherwise treat.  If you decide that you want to keep the natural wood look with no treatments, well then you have chosen the right wood because Cedar naturally weathers into a beautiful silver gray.

     4.  100% Biodegradable

As Cedar is an organic material, if it contains no treatments, it is 100% Biodegradable, which is great for the environment.  If you prefer plastic, metal, or even ceramic planters they do not provide the environmental benefits many gardeners prefer.  Organic options are better for the environment and provide a warmer aesthetic for any garden space.

     5.  High Quality

One can purchase many different kinds of wood depending on the project and the budget.  Unfortunately, Cedar can tend to run on the more expensive side; however, you get a higher quality wood for your money.  As one can see from the first four benefits Cedar makes the money you put into any project worthwhile.
