About Cedar Elm

Janka Hardness: 1320lbf

Color/Appearance: Heartwood is light to medium reddish brown. Paler sapwood is usually well defined.

Grain/Texture:
Grain is interlocked (making it very resistant to splitting). With a somewhat coarse, uneven texture.

Rot Resistance:
Rated as non-durable; susceptible to insect attack. Living trees are susceptible to Dutch elm disease.

Workability:
Can be a challenge to work because of interlocked grain, especially on quartersawn surfaces. Planing can cause tearout and/or fuzzy surfaces. Poor dimensional stability. Glues, stains, and finishes well. Responds well to steam bending, and holds nails and screws well.

Odor:
Elm usually has a strong, unpleasant smell when green; though once dried has very little odor.

Pricing/Availability:
Should be moderately priced, though availability from mature trees has been greatly diminished by Dutch elm disease.

Sustainability:
This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common Uses:
Boxes, baskets, furniture, hockey sticks, veneer, wood pulp, and papermaking.
