Western Red Cedar as insulation

Wood being a good insulator assists in keeping our homes cool during the summer and warm in the winter. Western Red Cedar is superior in its ability to resist thermal conductivity more than any other commonly available softwood. At 12% moisture content it has an R value of 1.35 per inch of thickness, which is 8 times better than concrete, 400 times better than steel, and 2,000 times that of aluminum.
