Review by Wildwood Homes llc:
Tom and crew are truly professionals. If you want the best quality and service and are tired of dealing with the warehouses and their mediocre product, contact Cedar Country (formerly Cedar Creek).
Review by Dexperts:
I have been purchasing materials from Cedar Country (formerly Cedar Creek) for years. They are a great supplier to work with, you will not find better service or product knowledge at any store. This is not the kind of lumber yard you stop by to grab a handful of studs at, but If you need cedar products or something specific from timbers to paneling these are the people to talk to.

Day after day we receive inquiries for the price of fence boards. Unlike traditional lumber yards and box home improvement stores, when a call like that is received at our store, our staff provides a price for a Western Red Cedar fence board as well as the grade. In many cases, the person who is inquiring about the price does not have a clear understanding of what the grading means and maybe comparing pricing of products from various sources that are not equal.
Imagine calling around to different restaurants and asking for the price of “cheeseburger”. While it is called the same thing at a fast food restaurant as well as a nice family restaurant, the“cheeseburger” at each location will be different quality and the pricing would reflect that. You would not purchase a cheeseburger based solely on price while not taking into consideration the quality, so therefore, you should not select a fence board based solely on price either.
While there is no regulation or standards for “cheeseburgers”, there are established standards for fence boards that have been developed by the National Lumber Grades Authority, as well as the West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau. It is important to note, that “fence grade” is below Knotty or Clear grades of Western Red Cedar and should not be compared to the quality or held at the same standard as lumber in those grades.
The West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau divides Western Red Cedar Fence Boards into three basic categories. Any grade may be rough or surfaced, Air Dried, Kiln Dried or “green”. Grade is determined by the best face.
No. 1 Fencing “Select”
No. 2 Fencing “Quality”
No. 3 Fencing “Rustic”
We do not allow returns or exchanges on ANY No.3 fencing, as the pricing reflects the quality of the the material of the whole order
