About Cedar Sense

Cedar Sense is an American-based, family-owned company located in Northern Minnesota.

Our Eastern Aromatic Red Cedar trees are grown & milled in the United States. We also conduct most of our packaging & all of our testing inside of the USA. The rings are manufactured over-seas right now but we are striving every day to bring these jobs to America. We are currently in negotiations with investors & preparing to construct & factory in the United States. This will bring many jobs to the United States.

The company was started by Michael Vail & originally operated out of his home & garage. Cedar Sense has since expanded to an office, begun hiring employees, & will continue to scale one sale at a time.

With your continued support, our mission is to bring employment opportunities to America & we rest every night on those laurels.

Many of our competitors’ cedar products will ship directly from overseas factories & many use Western Red Cedar. At Cedar Sense, we ONLY use Eastern Red Cedar for its much stronger sweet smell & a higher content of cedrene camphor oil. Cedrene camphor oil is very important to our product, because it is what naturally protects cedar trees from pests. It also gives it that AMAZING SWEET SMELL that everyone is so grown to love. Western cedar is also lighter in weight, making shipping costs lower. We provide Quality over Quantity & are able to keep right with everyone else.

So, when you think of Cedar Sense, we hope that you think of the American dream. That is what we are providing in every package.

Creating Opportunities

We are proud to say that because of our hard work, great products, & customers, we are able to create not just jobs, but careers. We strive to better this community, & our team at Cedar Sense does just that & more.

Our Core Values


We are committed to providing great service & to the success of our customers, community, & quality of our products.

Meet Michael, the owner of Cedar Sense. Michael started Cedar Sense with two goals: to create the American dream for his family, and to cultivate a business that makes a positive difference in customers’ lives.

“I have many years of experience with cedar dating back to my days of working at a lumber mill in my youth. Cedar has always been a passion of mine. I LOVE the smell of cedar, and so will you if you’ve yet to try it.”


At Cedar Sense, we value family – our own and those of our customers.

Meet Michael’s sons. They share a passion for the company & help in any way possible. Michael teaches them how the business works & provides them with opportunities to continue learning & growing.

Cedar Sense is a family-owned business & cares for the community. See what we’re up to & how we have given back by finding us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, & Pinterest under the name ‘Cedar Sense’!


Our mission is to bring employment opportunities to America. Innovation is key to the continued growth of our company & the execution of our mission.

Cedar Sense works to identify & implement new ideas & processes to meet our mission, but also to meet the needs of our customers.

This is why you will find us constantly working on something new, such as our wood flags. If a new idea, process, or project benefits our customers & meets our first two values, it’s also helping us meet our mission.
