Cedar can be an indispensable wood for many projects. From decks to fences to mulch, different cedars provide an array of colours and construction qualities that may adapt to your specific needs. It is carried by a host of wholesale retailers.


One of the easiest ways to buy cedar wholesale is to locate a lumber wholesaler near you. Many of these retailers have a solid Internet presence with well-kept websites. They often showcase their cedar products or the different species of cedar that they carry and sell. These suppliers may also carry cedar mulch if that is your landscaping interest.


Different types of cedar have different properties, so you should do your homework. Isolate the project for which you're using the wood and the characteristics most important to you. For instance, red dedar is stronger and more durable than Chinese dedar--although Chinese Cedar may technically be from the fir family--yet the latter is more effective at keeping away fungus and has more versatile staining properties.


The most important thing to do when shopping around is to get a number of price quotes. The wholesaler's site probably won't give you a price list up front. You'll typically have to go onto the contact page or similar page and enter the wood type and estimated square feet you're going to need. The company will then contact you with the quote.
