Like others said, If it is Cedar it will be pretty soft, easily dented with your fingernail and somewhat more brittle than say, Douglas Fir. You could face cut a 1/8” strip of the dry wood, and test the flexibility. Also, does the bark peel more like string cheese than Frosted Flakes? The contrast between the heartwood and sapwood looks to be true to Cedars character.
