Get Set For National Christmas Tree Day

The first Saturday of December is National Christmas Tree Day declared so by The Canadian Christmas Tree Growers Association. According to Ontario’s Ministry Of Natural Resources And Forestry, Christmas trees are grown for 8-10 years before they reach 8ft depending on the species of tree.  That means selecting a real tree for Christmas requires a bit of thought.  There are many options when it comes to Christmas Trees, but if you are looking for a unique option for your tree we suggest a Western Red Cedar tree.

Western Red Cedar Trees

Western Red Cedar is the commonly known name of the Thuja plicata, which means it is an evergreen or coniferous tree found in the western parts North America. Because western red cedar trees are rot resistant, they make a great choice for those who prefer to have a real Christmas tree.  In addition to making great Christmas Trees,  western red cedar is our wood of choice for our sandblasted wood signs.

Longevity Of Western Red Cedar

According to the Government of British Columbia website, a fallen western red cedar tree can lie for 100 years and still be harvested as wood roof shakes.  That is the reason we use cedar for our cottage, residential and sandblasted signs.  Cedar withstands the elements very well, and with the variety of weather across Canada, it makes cedar the best choice of wood or our signs.
