Never worked with anything but native poplar here in the ohio valley. It is a fairly soft wood but it is very durable as long as it is kept dry.

I'd like to use some rough sawn 7/8"x12" Western Red Cedar that I already have, as a nailing surface to apply slate shingle siding to. Stud spacing is 16" o.c. Is such a soft species stout enough too hang shingles in a vertical fashion? Thanks in advance Michael
