I gave this as a gift and it was perfect.
They seem fine, but I haven't planted them yet. I gave several as gifts to different regions. I want to help bees, butterflies, and birds. I also help chimpanzees @ ida-africa.org.
Sugar Pine is our value wood option. Beautiful, strong, takes paint or sealant well, and is more stable and lighter than more common ponderosa pine.
Western Red Cedar is our premium wood option. It is rot resistant, dimensionally stable, insulates well, and doesn't require painting or sealing.
All of our wood is sustainably harvested and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified.
