The background story of our Cedar wood

cedar wood timber grainBaviaanskloof Cedar (Widdringtonia schwarzii) is regarded as one the best of all South African indigenous tree species, due to its beautiful pale yellow to whitish colour, aromatic properties, durability and resistance to decay and borer beetle. 

It was extensively used for building and for almost all the woodwork needed by the early settlers in the area, to build houses, fences, telegraph posts, and for furniture and shipbuilding.

In February 2018, in a flash flood following heavy rain, many fire damaged and uprooted Cedar trees were washed down the Boskop river causing huge obstruction of the waterway. Removal of the debris and wood could have caused environmental damage to the watercourse and adjacent areas, so permission was sought from the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to utilise the timber. The permit to utilise this wood was issued on 12 July 2018. We are extremely fortunate to have access to this beautiful wood.


Please contact me for prices and more details, goods can generally be supplied anywhere.
