East coasters
for centuries

Throughout the east coast, cedar has protected residents for generations. It was traditionally used for exterior finishes, such as shingles, building logs, poles, dock posts and fences. It preserved blankets and valued linens in chests and cabinets. It is the wood of choice for long-lasting outdoor furniture, boats and canoes. And if you want a fresh and tidy outhouse, cedar has always been the best choice.

We depend on responsible and healthy silviculture to keep our mill operating for generations.

Our relationships with woodlot owners maintain locally sourced renewable lumber.
