Cedar - Japanese Lumber @ Rare Woods USA

Japanese Cedar is the national tree of Japan, where it is highly-prized for the scented, strong, but lightweight timber it produces. It’s significance extends beyond that, as its impact on Japanese culture is reflected by the fact that it is found planted at numerous sacred sites throughout the country. The wood is reddish-pink in color, straight-grained and medium textured; it glues, stains and finishes well. Its impressive strength-to-weight ratio and excellent working properties makes it ideal for all varieties of construction applications.

This species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is categorized as “Near Threatened” by the IUCN.

Why We Love This Wood

It is also important to note that this lumber is waterproof, which is why, historically, it has been utilized in Japanese boat and shipbuilding and has been prized for centuries across its indigenous regions. Natural forests in Japan that include this species are now very rare, with the bulk of Cryptomeria timber coming from commerical tree plantations. As you would expect from any wood bearing the word "Cedar" in its name, knots are not uncommon with this wood; otherwise, it has very cooperative working traits.
