I had the opportunity to attend a seminar last night by the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association. I thought I knew about everything there is to know about cedar but was pleasantly surprised to walk out with some information I have never heard before. Who is the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association?
The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association is a Vancouver based non-profit association representing 18 quality producers of Western Red Cedar lumber products in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia (Canada).Founded in 1954 and known as "the voice of the cedar industry"-the WRCLA operates customer service programs throughout the United States and Canada to support its members' cedar products with information, education and quality standards.
In addition to its Vancouver headquarters, the WRCLA has field offices in Washington, New York and Minnesota where cedar specialists offer a Super Cedar Advisory Service for specifiers, builders and other cedar consumers. When customers have a question about cedar, the answer is just a phone call away.
They have a great website. I suggest anyone considering specifying or using cedar on an upcoming project visit their informative website.
