Sierra Pacific has two California sawmills producing fencing at Oroville and Chinese Camp, centrally located to receive high grade, second-growth logs from Sierra Pacific forest lands
and other local sources. Cedar logs are processed at the fence plants to yield the following grades: 1) “El Dorado”, the highest grade of incense cedar fencing is graded from both faces
for a tight knot, cull-free board where appearances from both faces are very important in the end use, and 2) “Placer” boards are graded for the same criteria, based on the best face.
Placer boards are generally used in applications where appearance from only one face is needed. Minor defects may be present on the reverse face of these fence boards, however the
overall serviceability will remain. Sierra Pacific also offers white-wood fencing as a popular choice for customers wanting an eye-appealing product that installs quickly. Graded as
“Sierra Supreme”, our pre-stained whitewood boards come in three choices of color: Cedar tone, Gold tone and our most popular Redwood tone.
