Also known as Alaska Cypress and Pacific Coast Cypress, this rare and remarkably
beautiful cedar is grown only in the Pacific coast region of North America. This light
yellow wood, with its straight and uniform grain has been used in the boat building
industry for many years because of its exceptional natural resistance to weather.
Due to its short growing season, Alaskan Yellow Cedar is the hardest cedar grown
in the world. It dries quickly, works easily and performs well either finished or
unfinished due its natural oils that give the wood smooth wax-like finish.
Ideal for high traffic applications such as decking and flooring because of its shock
resistance and durability, it also is a popular choice for handrails and ramps
because it does not splinter. With a higher resistance to flame than other
softwoods, Alaskan Yellow Cedar is also an excellent choice for siding, roofing and
paneling. Because of the natural preservatives in this wood, we recommend using
stainless steel fasteners for installation.
