Timber Cut to Order
Sourced From Sustainably Managed Woodlands
We source our timber from British and European sustainably managed woodlands. We cut bespoke orders from long beams to boards. Our most popular species are English and European Oak, Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar and other species also available.
We operate two sawmills, one of which is a static machine based in our yard. The other is a mobile sawmill. This enables us to travel to customers and process trees on site.
A Long Lasting Renewable Resource
We provide construction timber in the form of Green Oak as well as kiln dried. Most structural oak is green oak, and this is a term used for recently felled and unseasoned timber. This is ideal for timber frame construction and general outdoor building. Green oak is a renewable resource, and is used in it’s raw state, without industrial processes altering it, its inherent natural beauty will last. An oak frame will last hundreds of years and hence outlive the time the oak has taken to grow. Compared with other building components timber scores very highly due to the minimal embodied energy in preparing the material for use in construction.
