UK Western Red Cedar – Thuja plicata

UK grown timber is a soft timber and as such it may be more prone to physical damage such as splitting and indentation/bruising, so care should be taken.

UK Cedar timber cladding will colour down to a silver/grey colour.  Homegrown Western Red Cedar has been growing in our country for 90 years plus and is faster grown than its Canadian Counterpart making it only a Moderately Durable softwood.

Homegrown Cedar is significantly cheaper over North American and Western Canadian alternative and from a carbon footprint perspective, is worth considering as the product does not have to travel half way round the world to our country.
