Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) is known for the beauty of its uniform yellow color, the strength of its fine even-texture and straight grain, and durability in outdoor applications.
Ideally suited for almost any outdoor or indoor project including patio covers, decks, gardens, trim, paneling and more. Alaskan Yellow Cedar lasts longer, stand up to the elements, and is harder than most commercial softwoods making it an ideal choice when strength and workability are desired. AYC is technically in the Cypress family (Yellow Cypress, Chamaecyparis nootkatensis).
Other common uses of Alaskan Yellow Cedar include, boat building, bridges, sill plates, or applications when chemicals of pressure treated lumber cannot be used but outdoor durability is required, like near water. Alaskan Yellow Cedar’s natural resistance to decay and stability over time make it a favorite among craftsman looking to build something special that will last.
J&W Lumber is excited to announce that we now stock Alaskan Yellow Cedar Lumber in San Diego and Riverside counties.
