Western Red Cedar is unique and prestigious softwood with outstanding physical characteristics. It offers a rare combination of aesthetic appeal and durability, thanks to its natural decay-resistant composition. S1S2E means one side is left rough, and the other side and edges are planed smooth. The rough side is often preferred as being exposed, but either side can be visible. In addition, cedar is easy to cut, saw and nail with common tools.
