A Touch of Class

Cedar, of course is perfect for your garden and home for many other reasons. Historically it has been the raw material out of which Native Americans used the bark to make rope and the wood for their totem poles. They used it as roofing material and it was the wood of choice for their canoes.

The settlers who came after them used it for building material, preferring the strong, clean smell of the wood and marveling at its lightness and strength, whilst the straight lengths made it ideal building material for their homes. In the process they also discovered its excellent thermal insulating properties.

As a matter of fact Cedar has been part of the quintessential American life for so long that it can rightfully claim a special place in our past as well as in our future. Today there are living Red Cedar trees which are protected under the Heritage Conservation Act because they bear marks made upon them by Native Americans and the Cedar culture is growing in modern homes across the US.

Therapeutic Qualities

Cedar contains natural oils which for centuries have been used by man as extracts for their anti-fungal, antiseptic, sedative, mild aphrodisiac and insect repellent qualities. In the context of your home and garden natural cedar will give off a pleasant scent, strongly reminiscent of the great American forest and the great outdoors.

The fact that the wood itself does not need to be treated by chemicals in order to weather proof it, makes it children and pet friendly, and the insect repellant properties of the Red Cedar aroma have saved many a summer garden party from turning into a smorgasbord for hungry insects.

Children Friendly

Red Cedar’s smoothness and toughness combined with its mild therapeutic qualities, and the fact that it needs no chemical treatment, makes it ideal to use in children’s play areas and even bedrooms. The smooth, hard cedar surface makes splinters less likely than any other type of wood and the unique Cedar aroma can create a calming atmosphere for children to be in. The uses Red Cedar are limited only by the limits of your imagination.
