    Ive seen lots of posts saying cedar planks are fine and lots of posts saying cedar planks aren't. I think we all agree that the shavings aren't ok, can we come to an agreement on the wood??

    Cedar siding is not normally "Aromatic Red Cedar"

    Board have a minute amount of surface area compared to the shavings, and don't give off the fumes.

    There will never be "agreement" unless there is an understanding of the differences
