Another factoid to make you think:
Green/wet Red Cedar, it is acidic enough to eat away carbide teeth. Sterite teeth, even though not thought of as "quality" are preferred because they are not eaten away by this.
Dry/seasoned Red Cedar, the acidity goes down enough to use carbide teeth, although it is still somewhat corrosive.
Dry red cedar shavings, even though known to repel insects, when used undiluted as animal bedding has been known to eat away and burn the soles of horse's and canine's feet. If used in animal bedding, it is usually diluted by using a small portion of cedar mixed with a larger amount of fir or pine shavings.
That is also why the dust from Red Cedar is known to be a respiratory irritant.
