(Spanish Cedar)

Light wood ranging in color from dark pink to pinkish brown to reddish brown, more or less intense, coarse textured, glossy surface and with golden reflecting characteristics. Cedar has a well-pronounced pleasant aroma. (Its aroma is less intense than that of Sabina, Eastern Red Cedar, but it is longer lasting).


Cedar wood is considered moderately resistant to attack by decay organisms, (any type of organism that feeds on living wood or dead wood).

Main Applications: 

It is particularly suitable for internal parts of fine furniture, decorative sheets, plywood, decorated packages, boxes moldings, linings for closets, ceilings, baseboards, Venetian, etc. Cedarwood, between light woods, is the one with greater diversification in terms of utility.
