At Downie Timber and Selkirk Cedar, we produce a wide variety of finished cedar products. Western Red Cedar, is without question, natureï¿½s most beautiful wood. In addition to offering a deeply textured grain and incredibly warm colour, cedar is both durable and dimensionally stable. As well, Western Red Cedarï¿½s natural oils resist insects and decay.
Although attempts have been made to imitate the beauty and character of Western Red Cedar, no man-made product has ever come close.
