The Story of Cedar Sense
A little bit about the owner…
Three years ago, Michael Vail left his $143,000 a year career to start up a cedar company. Many people told him that he was crazy, but he didn’t care. His goal was to create opportunity in rural USA, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.
Cedar Sense provides Eastern Red Aromatic Cedar products that are an all-natural substitute to mothballs.
Most of our competition comes from Chinese-based companies that source their products from American cedar, but create it in China. We at Cedar Sense have found a way to keep our cedar 100% in America. It’s grown, milled, and manufactured right in the United States. None of our cedar leaves the country.
Cedar Sense is dedicated to creating jobs in America, and we are proud to say that we are on that right track. We are constantly innovating, becoming more efficient, and coming up with new products every week. Check out more on our website to stay updated on what we have in store for you!
We stand up for America first, and believe in American values. We believe in freedom first, freedom of speech, and freedom overall. Cedar Sense wants to thank each and every one of our fans and customers that believe in and stand up for what’s right – the stars and stripes, the red, white, and blue.

What is special about cedar trees?
Many people use cedar because of its fragrant, durable wood. Eastern red aromatic cedar is useful in more ways than one. It can help deter pests such as moths and it also keeps clothing and cars smelling fresh. Cedar does not rot very easily, making it super long lasting.
How would you describe cedar?
Cedar wood is light, soft, and durable. It has a sweet (but not overpowering) aromatic smell to it. It is often reddish in color, is decay-resistant, and an insect repellent.
Do cedar trees need a lot of water?
Cedar trees need to be completely dried out between each watering, as you don’t want to over water it. Fertilizer is generally not necessary unless the soil it is in is very unhealthy. Once the tree is mature, it will need regular mulching and removal of any dead/diseased branches.
What color is cedar?
Most types of cedar wood are a pinkish-red color, though it can have some purple tones as well. As it ages it loses its reddish hues and becomes a silver or gray color.
