Tamarack and Cedar are nature's alternative to Chemically Treated Wood.
With the health concerns of CCA treated wood becoming more apparent every day, people are looking for an environmentally friendly lumber alternative. There is a large trend moving toward species that are naturally resistant to decay.
For years, Island farmers and boat builders have used Tamarack or Juniper [as it is commonly known] for items such as fence posts and fishing boat ribs. They used this product because  it is much stronger than Spruce or White Cedar and  it has a very high natural rot resistance and would last longer than any other local species.

MILLING PROCEDURE Our Tamarack Decking is first kiln dried to an average moisture content of 15-18%. Then our decking is milled on a five head moulder, dressed on all four sides and eased on all four edges. This ensures a smooth, splinter free surface and readily accepts stains or finishes. Tamarack has a very appealing natural appearance and becomes more pronounced once a finish has been applied. This deck will withstand years of wear and tear, but will also be the perfect addition to your home or cottage getaway.
