Alaskan Yellow Cedar
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is fine textured, light colored and turns a beautiful silver gray, and is the most naturally moisture tolerant species. The various physical properties of the wood make it an attractive material for both general construction and boat building. Due to its slow growth it is hard and, like other cypress woods it is durable; it therefore offers good dimensional stability, and is resistant to weather, insects, and contact with soil.
