Due to its slow growth, it is hard and, like other cypress woods it is durable; it, therefore, offers good dimensional stability and is resistant to weather, insects, and contact with soil.
It works easily with hand or machine tools; it turns and carves quite well. It can be fastened with glues, screws, and nails. Uniform colour and straight grain will take a fine finish. It resists splintering and wears smoothly over time. t can be used as a substitute for Western Red Cedar shingles. We carry both shingles and shakes in No.1 grade.
