The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association’s Cedar School has been highly successful in educating students about the benefits and applications of Western Red Cedar. This year marks the 70th Anniversary of the WRCLA, established in 1954 and what a year for our two biggest events. A combined 180 attendees and lots to celebrate. The Cedar school offers the opportunity for students to learn about the full circle of Western Red Cedar from the forest to finished product. Courses included manufacturing, grading, installing, finishing, marketing and more. “Record attendance of delegates and students for the 2024 WRCLA Cedar Summit and Cedar School in beautiful Whistler, BC.  This event celebrated the most versatile and environmentally friendly building product on earth – Western Red Cedar and planned future initiatives to promote cedar and its competitive advantages over non-wood substitutes,” said managing director of the WRCLA Brad Kirkbride.
