The Highest Quality of Wood Fences

Most of the fencing industry has moved to using 5/8”- or even 1/2″-inch thick pickets. Not us. At Viking, it is important to us to continue offering the very best picket options possible. We continue to mill 3/4″ pickets for all of our customers. We are also the only company in Texas to offer 5/4”-inch fence boards.


Western Red Cedars grow in British Columbia, Canada, and the government there restricts annual harvesting to just 1% of the overall stock. Furthermore, the Ministry of Forests requires logging companies to reforest public lands to compensate for the offset of harvesting. According to the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association, three trees are planted for every one harvested. When you choose Western Red Cedar fences, you know that you are helping the environment as well as getting a top-quality product.

Naturally Decay-Resistant

Western Red Cedar is prized for being naturally decay-resistant, requiring neither kiln-drying nor chemical treatment to repel rot and decay. And, because it doesn’t need treatment, it has a low carbon footprint.


Prone to warping and decay, pine has none of the natural qualities which make Western Red Cedar a superior fencing material.

Chinese Cedar/Fir

Advertised as an inexpensive high-quality alternative to Western Red Cedar, Chinese Cedar may not even be a member of the cedar family. Instead, it is probably a member of the fir family and has failed to live up to the reputation other fencing companies have tried to give it.

Spruce and Douglas Fir

Like pine, these options are quick to decay, and even lack dimensional stability. Simply put, there is a good reason it’s so inexpensive.
