Western Red Cedar Clear and Better - Planed All Round Timber
Western Red Cedar stands out as one of the best timbers you can buy, not only is it highly durable, it looks brilliant. The timber’s vivid array of colours ranges from light orangey red to a deeper purplish red and they make for a vibrant display.
At home when used internally and externally, Western Red Cedar has many uses, which include exterior cladding, greenhouses, sheds, bee-hives, shingles and light construction. One of the most popular uses for Canadian Cedar is fence slats, they provide an ideal, contemporary garden screen which allows sunlight through to brighten up your garden.
The clear and better grade, that Planed Western Red Cedar is provided in, has minimal knots and any knots that are found will be small. Our planed Cedar is ready for you to work with, however, bear in mind that the wood is acidic and tends to corrode ferrous metals – Stainless steel or silicone bronze fixings are recommended.
When working out prices for planed Western Red Cedar please enter your exact finished sizes as this is what we will plane down to. The plane will leave you with a smooth finish along the sides and faces of the boards while the ends will be left with a rough sawn finish and the boards as a whole will be slightly over length ready for you to cut down.
For the best value please enter your exact lengths don’t order overlength to cut into two pieces that you will use. This is because it is more likely for the one board to be more expensive than the two individual shorter pieces.
At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest % of usable Western Red Cedar Planed Timber possible from your delivery.

Clear & Better Western Red Cedar Planed All Round from iWood Timber
Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 14 - 17 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please click here to open our delivery cost page in a new window.
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
The ordering process
Our Planed All Round Western Red Cedar is air dried to a moisture content of between 20 and 25%.
