"Alaskan yellow cedar is my favourite wood. Similarly to western red cedar, it is still possible to obtain very high-grade tight and straight grained material. This wood can be simply decribed as butter; it is unparalled in its workablility, it is very stable against moisture, and it has a very constistant bright colour that richly deepens with exposure to UV rays. For these reasons, it is prized by Indigenous carvers and used for the most detailed carvings. It is also commonly exported to Japan for the highest-end buildings, temples, and shrines. Yellow cedar almost exclusively grows in alpine and subalpine terrain in the more southern regions of its range making it more difficult to log."
