I am in the Munich Germany area and am researching woods for planking and ribs for wood canvas canoes. A lumberyard in Munich has WRCedar costing 150 Euro for a board 2" by 8" by 12+ feet; rather pricey. My other research has identified European Larch as a possibility. I imagine that Russia has lots of cedar, but so far my internet searches haven't produced any local suppliers, if in fact Russian cedar gets to lumberyards in Europe. Any thoughts about suitable species for planking and ribs and availability, in my neck of the woods?
