Last year we were approached and asked to try Kiln Dried Incense Cedar for our decking program. We bought in and promoted it all summer long and into the winter with only favorable results. Customers were happy and we had no issues arise.
So when deciding what to do for this summer building season it was clear that it was time to double down on Incense cedar decking.
What is Incense Cedar? First of all it is one of 4 species of trees included in the grading group “Western Cedars” So along with Western Red Cedar, Alaska Yellow Cedar and Port Orford Cedar it shares the same characteristics such as rot and insect damage, strength and hardness. Further, it is lighter in color and has mainly smaller knots.
We are now stocking Kiln Dried, Premium Appearance Incense Cedar in
5/4×4 8′,10′, 12′,14′,16′ Lengths
5/4×6 8′, 10′, 12′, 16′ Lengths

And Finally, what really makes Incense Cedar work for us all is the fact that it is very competitively priced, on average 20% less than comparable western red Cedar products
