Incense Cedar is becoming one of the most used woods in the fencing industry, taking over its close relative the Western Red Cedar. With a lower cost and many great qualities, it's not hard to see why. It is native to forests in southern Oregon, western Nevada, and California, Incense Cedar is a blond wood with straight, clean grains and is non-resinous. Due to its non-resinous property, Incense Cedar holds varnishes, lacquer and other stains far better than resinous woods.
