Default Looking for Western Red Cedar in Maryland

I've got a request from the wife for a pegola project and called my
local lumber yard, Johnson Lumber in Edgewater, MD. $2.88 LF for a
clear 2x4 and $4.33 LF for 2x6. 8ft 4x4 clear posts we $34 each.

I was wondering if these are reasonable prices and what my alternatives
were as far as retailers...or species (of wood, not retailers!

Thanks

Tim

I really like eastern white cedar for outdoor projects. I would not bury it
in the ground though. Here in Maine it is $1/bf at the mill.

Thanks Dave,

I never heard of this wood. Is it only in Maine? The price sounds
right!

Han,

Call Frank Martin at Agincourt, 908 874-8234. He's in Hillsborough NJ, about
an hour's drive for you. Last time I was there, he had several woods suitable
for outdoor projects, including cedars and cypress.

You can also plug your ZIP code into Woodfinder http://www.woodfinder.com and
see what suppliers are listed in your area. Its not necessarily a complete
listing, but you might find what you need.
