The Bodie Process. Bodie Ghost Town Siding and Trim starts with a new cedar board. The proprietary conditioning solution is applied to the cedar board. A reaction to the tannins in the wood occurs. The Bodie Solution accelerates the natural aging process of cedar. Both sunlight and water are needed for this activation. No more additional maintenance is recommended. Simply letting the cedar age into its natural beauty is one of the outstanding properties of Bodie Ghost Town. Old Barnwood, recycled and reclaimed wood products are usually made from doug fir, spruce, etc. none of these species possess the natural tannins and excellent wood properties of cedar. These features make Bodie Ghost Town Siding & Trim a superior building product.
