Eastern White Pine is a popular choice in Ontario for log home construction due to its abundance in the province and in general, its straightness of growth. Other common types of trees used in Canada for building log structures are Western Red Cedar, Western Douglas Fir, Eastern Red Pine and Eastern White Cedar. Our rustic log cabin (shown below) is constructed of Eastern White Cedar.
If you have been out shopping for a Christmas tree in Ontario you are probably aware of the many choices of tree species.
