Although Aromatic Red Cedar is included in the cypress family, which includes many species of cedar, it’s more closely related in junipers. In tree form, it is more commonly called Eastern Red Cedar, while the wood itself is usually referred to as Aromatic Red Cedar. Most trees tend to be fairly small in diameter, therefore Aromatic Red Cedar boards tend to be knotty and narrow.
Heartwood tends to be reddish or violet-brown. Sapwood is a pale-yellow color and can appear throughout the heartwood as streaks and stripes.
Aromatic Red Cedar has excellent resistance to both decay and insect attack. Overall, is easy to work although it has a high silica content, which can dull cutters. The wood is typically left unfinished to preserve its aromatic properties.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.
To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:
- Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.
If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
