LOGS FOR LOG HOMES
Western Red Cedar Logs for Log Homes are exceptional softwood material ideal for handcrafted log home construction. Western Red Cedar is lightweight, extremely durable, long lasting and very easy to work with. Our Western Red Cedar logs include many of the character pieces that today’s builders are looking for in a house log.
Western Red Cedar poles are available in both distribution and transmission lengths. Cedar provides an extremely durable, climbable pole, and unlike other species, Cedar’s heartwood produces chemical compounds called extractives that naturally resist decay, fungi and insects. Western Red Cedar can withstand extreme desert temperature, mountain snowfall, high winds and rain assuring a long service life.
Western Red Cedar is our flagship product. Red Cedar makes up approximately 8% of British Columbia’s total growing stock, and is one of the most commercially valuable species. Its unique properties make it ideal for weather-resistant applications including siding, decking, poles, posts, fences, ship and boat building. We also sells Western Hemlock, Spruce, and Yellow Cedar.
We export raw logs in a variety of species to markets worldwide. With a solid network of logistic, export and international trade specialists we can serve the needs of buyers from Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
