California Cedar Products Company has applied our extensive knowledge about the processing of various wood species in the sawmill, pencil slat facility and pencil manufacturing to develop the new Ecoslat® Pacific Albus® product range to meet the quality and performance standards required by our customers for a range of products anticipated to be produced from this species. This product range is considered to be comparable or superior to our Ecoslat® Basswood product range in most quality characteristics while offering enhanced environmental, social and economic performance benefits.
