Western Red Cedar is an attractive fence board and it is famed for its extraordinary durability and resistance to decay. The fence board color is extremely attractive, varying from almost pure white of the narrow sapwood to the light straw shade of dark reddish-brown of the heartwood. The wood of Western red cedar has a very low coefficient of expansion, so that it does not shrink, swell or warp excessively, even when subjected to changing degrees of temperature and moisture. The wood is saturated to every fiber with natural preservative oil which renders it virtually immune to decay and gives it extreme durability without artificial preservative treatment.
