What species of wood is used for the wooden planters?

April 26, 2012

The wood is Cunninghamia lanceolata, commonly called Chinese Cedar. Although native to China, it is grown in Vietnam and the United States. It is a member of the cedar family and has been tested and compared to its counterpart Western Red Cedar. It resembles Western Red Cedar due to its aromatic scent (which naturally repels pests and fungus). It also resembles Douglas Fir, having a similar grain and texture.

Due to its light weight and its durability, it has been used in China for centuries for house building, ship building, saunas, coffins, fences, decking, and furniture.

All of our products come from responsibly managed forests. There is no old growth wood used–ever. All of our factories are certified and members of the Forestry Stewardship Council, a world-wide organization dedicated to the preservation of woodlands.
