Wood fences are among the most beautiful options for their visual appeal. They offer the ultimate in performance and style. For the natural look, NuArrow recommends top-grade western red cedar fencing for privacy, semiprivate, and picket. With this durable material, your imagination is the only style limit! Western red cedar doesn’t shrink or warp like pine does. It has a straight grain which produces a higher quality board without many defects or discolorations. Cedar fence has a naturally occurring substance called Tannin which protects it from insects, pests, and decay which is why cedar doesn’t need to be treated like pine fence. Extremely sturdy, this soft wood can last 20+ years and will naturally fade into a silver color over time.
