WHY USE WESTERN RED CEDAR?
Western Red Cedar is lightweight, decay resistant and is a great thermal insulator (even on hot Colorado days, it is cool to sit in.).
One of it's most valuable characteristics is its high resistance to decay; the resin is poisonous to insects making it resistant to insect attacks and it is bacterial and fungal resistant.
It is not uncommon for a properly finished Western Red Cedar Adirondack chair to last 25 years! These furniture pieces often become a family heirloom and are handed down from generation to generation.
