Could someone with experience in the field please explain to me the level of CITES protection for Spanish cedar. I'm told that CITES paperwork is needed for this wood when it's exported as raw material (as a log or lumber), but that it's still perfectly legal to export it without paperwork as a finished product -- as a guitar neck, for example. Is this correct -- or is CITES paperwork needed for Spanish cedar in all instances?
