Western Red Cedar is a beautiful wood and the species is an excellent choice for exterior applications like fencing as its fibers are rich in natural compounds that act as preservatives, providing the wood with a high resistance to moisture, decay, and insects, and rendering it extremely long-lasting.
Japanese Cedar, which is also known as Sugi, has been used for centuries in Japan and boasts a fine, straight grain and inter-grown knot structure that make ideally suited for applications like fencing, particularly when cost is a factor. The species is very long-lasting and easy to maintain.
Finishing and maintenance are recommendations provided by the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association (WRLCA). For more information on finishing and maintenance, please visit realcedar.com/outdoor/care-maintenance
Fence posts, boards and rails are available in both clear and knotty grades and come in a several different surface textures to create the exact fence you’re looking for. Surface textures include:
A textured surface where the blade marks, created during the milling process when a circular saw or band saw is used, are visible on all four sides of the wood.
A more pronounced “rougher” surface texture created in the milling process when roughened planer knives are used. The surface is visible on all four sides and creates a pleasant, rustic look.
Usually referred to as S4S, all four sides of the board or post have been smoothed to present a uniform, elegant finish for a high-end look.
Known as S1S2E, one side of the board is smooth, and the other is textured, allowing you to use either for your exposed view.
The ideal choice for a traditional, rustic style fence, either circular or band saws or roughened planer knives are used to create a roughened surface visible on all four sides.
