A and Better Clear Vertical Grain Cedar, often simply referred to as CVG Cedar, is a highly prized and sought-after wood option known for its exceptional beauty and versatility. What sets this option apart is its distinctive grain pattern, characterized by straight, closely spaced vertical lines that run primarily parallel to the length of the board. This unique grain pattern is a result of how the wood is sawn and cut, and can be showcased on both interior and exterior applications.
