What is Real Western Red Cedar?

Paul Caronna, General Manager of Sequoia Outdoor Supply

Did you know that Sequoia Outdoor Supply is the largest dealer of Western Red Cedar in Louisiana? We stock Western Red Cedar and highly recommend it to customers for outdoor projects. It’s a DIYer’s dream!

When deciding what wood to use for your next building project, we recommend Western Red Cedar for many reasons:

  • First off, it’s easy on the eyes. It’s a beautifully textured wood that accepts and holds a variety of bleaches and stains, which offer a quality finish and are designed to protect your investment.
  • Second, it’s durable. It’s hard to beat a wood that’s naturally resistant to decay, moisture and insects. A natural wood like Western Red Cedar tends to last longer and requires less maintenance over time.
  • Lastly, it’s environmentally friendly. Unlike other building materials like concrete and steel, Western Red Cedar is recyclable, biodegradable and requires less energy to produce.

Whether you’re a homeowner taking on your own backyard project, a designer working on a serene indoor space or a contractor working on a big job, Sequoia Outdoor Supply has all the Western Red Cedar you need to get the job done at the right price. Western Red Cedar is ideal for outdoor projects like a multi-level deck, a picture perfect pergola, outdoor furniture or kitchen, storage shed, vertical planter or even a house for your four-legged friend!

If you’re looking to give your backyard a facelift, our Western Red Cedar pavilion kits are manufactured in a variety of sizes to fit your budget. With any width and height dimension up to 16” x 16” and up to 40’ in length, we mill cedar daily to fit your need.
