Western Red Cedar Grades

Western Red Cedar Grades

Choice and versatility

We offer three grades of Western Red Cedar to suit different uses, styles and budgets: Clear Grade, Eco Grade and Select Tight Knot Grade.

Clear Grade

  • Superior quality, with very minimal knots and imperfections.
  • Outstanding durability.
  • Produced from the highest grade and mostly cut Quartersawn for greater stability and uniformity.
  • Run from old growth trees, carefully selected for their exceptional quality.

Eco Grade

  • Quality timber that offers great value for money.
  • Some knots and color blemishes (>70% clear).
  • Ideal for all cladding purposes, with long life and excellent appearance.
  • We offer one standard Eco Grade profile and can often produce customised profiles for specific needs.

Knotty Grade

  • A knotty and economical option, very popular for exterior weatherboard applications.
  • At Cedar Sales, we grade our board after milling and kiln drying so our Knotty Grade is superior to many others commercially available.
  • As with our Eco Grade profiles, we can often produce customised Knotty profiles for specific needs.
  • All our Knotty Grade is kiln dried. This is essential for Western Red Cedar Cladding projects where stability is required.
