"We love using sustainable products and supporting local mills and Oregon based businesses and are very thankful for all that you guys do to make that possible." -- Myles Seaton - All Natural Additions
Juniper is locally sourced from grassland and watershed restoration projects in Central-Eastern Oregon and cedar comes to us from well-managed forestlands in the Pacific Northwest.
Protect and restore fragile ecosystems and forestlands while creating jobs in our local communities with beautiful, long lasting real wood solutions for your outdoor spaces.
Creating markets for local wood products supports a network of land stewards, small mills in our rural communities, and the regional fabricators who make our products.
RESTORATION JUNIPER decking is a local, sustainable alternative to Trex or imported tropical hardwoods like ipe, and lasts much longer than cedar or redwood without added chemical treatments. It has a unique design aesthetic and promises decades of beauty and performance. Juniper is sourced from grassland and watershed restoration projects in Eastern Oregon. Check out these Oregon State University studies and stringent testing that helped take encroaching Western Juniper from an ecosystem threat to a commercially viable wood product.
FSC® WESTERN RED CEDAR decking is sourced from FSC Certified Forests in Oregon & Washington and is cut, kiln dried and milled by small businesses just outside of Portland, creating a network of jobs while protecting precious resources for future generations. Though not as long lasting as juniper, cedar offers a more uniform appearance, longer lengths and dimensions that are not ideal in juniper.
STAINS, SEALERS & MAINTENANCE
Routine sweeping and cleaning away debris, moss and algae are vital for the long life of your deck. Like all natural wood left exposed to sunlight and weather, both juniper and cedar will turn gray over time if left untreated. This can be delayed or prevented through the application of sealers or stains and can further extend the life of the wood. We love and recommend Portland based TimberPro Coatings for deck care and maintenance products.
