Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar's outstanding carrying capacity and flexibility allows it to withstand extreme weight and severe weather conditions. Cedar provides excellent gaff penetration for secure footing. Cedar's heartwood produces chemical compounds called extractives that naturally resist decay, fungi and insects. It's straight grain and uniform texture prevents twisting after installation, which minimizes pole fracture caused by severe weather or mechanical damage. With proper pressure treating, cedar's inherent long service life can be extenteded up to 80 years, with little or no maintenance.
