Oak is the most well known and loved of all Britain’s native trees. It is renowned for its beautiful grain, strength and durability
Sycamore is a member of the maple family, has a very pale attractive grain suitable for interior cabinet work; great for kitchens as it has mildly antiseptic qualities.
Ash is a hard and attractively figured timber, suitable for interior cabinet work and some external applications
Available soft woods include Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar
Sawn and Planed Boards
Using timber from English woodlands ultimately reduces the carbon footprint of any project. We are able to advise on any species and specification required. All timber is air-dried for one year per inch of thickness and then kiln dried to a suitable moisture content unlike European imports; which tend to be kiln-dried directly after felling which definitely leads to an inferior product.
Flooring / Decking
A hardwood floor makes a beautiful statement in any property. Witness the lovely wide boards in existence in all manner of period properties around the countryside. They are hygienic (unlike carpet) and can be refinished many times over.
Is an attractive and economical way to finish both old and new buildings and is also a good insulator. Please note 100 linear metres minimum order (unless already in stock).
