White Oak vs Western Red Cedar

Quercus alba

Thuja plicata

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

White Oak
Western Red Cedar

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features green acorns and beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall.

With a huge growth in bourbon and scotch over the past few decades there is an emerging shortage of white oak that is the primary tree used for cask barrels and aging.

Western Red Cedar is native to the Pacific Northwest, and is the largest tree in the cypress family. Featuring horizontol branching with scale-like dark green foliage that has a strong aroma. The wood is naturally durable and light, and is resistent to decay and insects, making it sought after for house siding, panelling, furniture, and fences. This is British Colombia's offical tree.
