|Cedar, Port Orford|
Softwood 30 lbs. per cubic foot, 2.5 lbs. per board foot
Grown in limited areas of Northern California and Southern Oregon, it is the preferred species of boat building cedars. Although only moderately strong, it is the strongest cedar and the heaviest before seasoning. The heartwood is light yellow to pale brown with a distinctive spicy odor. The wood is fine and uniform in texture, moderately hard, shrinks moderately, seasons well, and is very resistant to rot.
