British ‘homegrown’ cedar is a cost-effective alternative to Canadian western red cedar. The timber is grown sustainably in the UK, and therefore offers a significantly reduced carbon footprint compared to imported species.
Another key difference between homegrown cedar and western red cedar is that homegrown cedar is faster growing and therefore has a much more open grain, resulting in a more rustic appearance. Homegrown cedar is a soft amber colour and will lighten to a subtle silver-grey over time as it weathers.
Always seek advice about treatment and after-care to preserve the aesthetics and style you want for your cladding in the longer-term.
