At Bee-Equipment we only use Western Red Cedar directly imported from Canada which is stated when you choose the wood grade of your product. We are one of the few companies who use this Canadian Cedar in the UK.
First Grade and Select Cedar products are always made from Western Red Cedar, this wood is grown in north America and is the highest quality range of cedar wood. All of our cedar is sustainable and certified. 1st grade are our very best products, with little to no knots or imperfections. These will last and last, and they look fantastic.
Second Grade Cedar products are made using English Cedar. English Cedar is often lighter in colour compared to Western Red Cedar, however still provides a quality item that is made to last. 2nd grade boxes are our standard. Sturdy construction with some cosmetic imperfections, may have knots and splits, very usable.
We choose to use either Western Red Cedar or English Cedar for our products, as the only other option we have would be a less sustainable Cedar from Asia. This has a less reliable certification process in terms of sustainable harvesting.
Parts of the hive are often made of many pieces glued together. Although this does have some advantages in terms of warping it is less aesthetically pleasing.
