Alaska yellow cedar has a fine texture and straight grain, and its nearly yellow color silvers exquisitely upon sun exposure. Alaska yellow cedar trees grow to 120 feet tall (30 to 37 meters) with an average tree trunk of 4 to 6 feet in diameter (1.2 to 1.8 meters).

Strongly aromatic, it is moderately strong and hard. Often used where weather resistance, stability and workability are needed: bleachers, park benches, exterior cabinet work, stage construction, and marine and commercial landscape installations as well as shingles and shakes for roofing and siding.
