At Katahdin Cedar Log Homes, we believe it is essential to lead in our community, in our industry and in our commitment to customer service. We’re making news in Maine and around the country, and we invite you to learn about our current projects.
A commitment to the environment
As residents of one of the most beautiful and unspoiled states in the country, we Mainers keep a close watch on how our actions affect our surrounding environment. Our business is dependent on nature and the sustainable harvest of cedar trees from Maine forests. And, we feel it’s important to support the active outdoors lifestyles embraced by so many of our customers. As a result we continue our mission to make smart decisions about energy and our surroundings.
Using the whole tree and nothing but the tree
One of the ways we’ve discovered to maximize our cedar logs is to make other useful items from the portions that don’t make the grade for log walls. Tops and other waste pieces are milled into beautiful cedar fencing, gates and other elements that unify your Katahdin Cedar Log Home with its surroundings.

Katahdin Cedar Log Homes, has developed ancillary businesses to utilize as much of the cedar trees as possible. One of those businesses is Katahdin Cedar Fencing, which takes the tops and lesser grade cedar logs not used in our homes and mills it into fencing posts, stockade panels and other fencing components. Northern White Cedar is an ideal wood to use for fencing as it resists rot, insects and cracking over long periods of time.
Most of Katahdin Cedar Fencing is produced for commercial distribution and sold to fencing companies throughout the Northeast. These companies then improve on the designs with added elements to complete the fence product. Panels and other fencing components are covered with a UV protective barrier until they are shipped.
