Red Cedar

Red Cedar has a tight grain and higher levels of tannic acid which acts as a natural preservative. This makes red cedar more durable than the yellow variety. Red cedar tends to weather to a rich, dark color.

Yellow Cedar

Yellow cedar has a wider grain and in general terms, it will not last as long as red cedar will. It weathers reasonably uniformly to a very appealing silver tone.
