The finest wood you'll ever find
Western Red Cedar
Deep in the heart of the Great Northwest Canadian Wilderness, on Vancouver Island, a tree grows. Not just any tree, but the Vixen Hill Cedar tree. The finest cedar in the world. Why? Because in this rugged Canadian wilderness, anything that isn't robust enough to thrive doesn't survive at all. These cedar trees are subject to a short, intenst growing season and a long, fierce winter. The result is a wood of a higher grain density that resists all that toxin, fungi and insects have to throw at them. When the time is right - and only then - the cedar is ecologically harvested, thereafter making it's way to us at Vixen Hill, just outside of Lancaster, PA - and ultimately, to your home.
Our own lumber mill
There are two very bad words at Vixen Hill. They are "Kiln drying". Kiln drying forces the moisture out of the woods grain at an abnormally fast rate, leaving you with stressed, pithy wood that has a tendency to bend and warp. So, why allow someone else to mill your wood and kiln dry? It diminishes the wood but saves time and money - an unacceptable compromise at Vixen Hill. So unlike any other producer of wood products, we mill the wood ourselves and have done so since 1980. We air-dry it, allowing moisture to evaporate naturally. That ensures the finest wood in the world stays that way.
Vixen Hill cedar wood comes from one of the most strictly managed forests in the world. We refuse to buy exotic or endangered woods. Our cedar is totally renewable and environmentally correct - and our process of air-drying saves energy.
