OYA’s Western Red Cedar is found in Western Canada.
 • OYA obtains its WRC from managed forests, in which controlled harvests, natural regeneration and reforestation programs ensure a perpetual harvest.
WRC in its natural unfinished state has a richly textured tactile grain combined with a glowing palette of warm, mellow tones ranging from amber to deep honey brown. No man-made material can duplicate the depth of cedar’s natural luster.
 • OYA’s WRC remains subtly aromatic, and the characteristic flagrance just adds another dimension to its universal appeal.
Much of today’s outdoor furniture consists of chemically pressure treated materials. These materials hold up outdoors because they are soaked in toxic preservatives
