6 Reasons Organic Cedar is Superior for Wood Fencing & Gardens

Organic cedar wood is a great choice for fencing and gardens, particularly in New England. 

Durable and decay-resistant, cedar wood endures our northern climate up to 5 times better than any other species. 

Cedar wood is also an environmentally-friendly choice suitable for organic gardening, raised beds, cedar-lined compost bins, beehives or any backyard project that requires durable, untreated wood.

6 Reasons Organic Cedar is Superior:

  1. Eco-friendly: Natural oils repel insects so cedar wood fencing does not require any toxic chemical treatment to prevent insect damage.
  2. Durable: Cedar wood endures our northern climate up to 5 times better than other species, with natural resistance to insects, mold, and rot.
  3. Stable: Cedar wood’s superior stability means minimal shrinkage, twisting, and warping compared with other wood fencing choices.
  4. Naturally Beautiful: The strength and natural beauty of cedar wood fencing will remain through many winds, rains, and winter storms.
  5. Low-Maintenance: While other woods should be painted or stained to be preserved, cedar can be left to weather to a beautiful natural hue (a silky, silver gray) - making it the only decorative wood fencing choice that’s virtually maintenance free.
  6. Sustainably Sourced: We purchase Northern White Cedar (also known as Eastern White Cedar), which grows abundantly in the forests of Northern Maine, Quebec and New Brunswick Canada. It’s sustainably sourced, ensuring it has the ability to replenish itself without threat of overcutting.
