It takes a lot of work to even approximately do it right.

We need to repair the rotting deck at our new-to-us old house.  We have
contacted building supply companies, forest certification organizations
and Greenpeace....  But still we cannot find cedar which is guaranteed to
not be the product of clear-cutting of old-growth forests in British

No eastern cedar, even for boards.
We don't want to use chemically treated wood.
The artificial products have a dubious environmental footprint.

Any suggestions?  Does anyone know how to source environmentally friendly
deck wood?
