Green Timber

All wood naturally shrinks as it dries, however not all uses of timber require it to be dried first. This magnificent timber frame was built from green oak milled from the client’s own woodland.

If you are a green wood timber framer, greenwood craftsperson, or hobbyist we can supply fresh timber, hardwood or softwood, sawn or in the round for you to work it to your craft.

We are experts in selecting and grading material suitable for structural grade timber (both hard and soft wood), visually stress graded according to British Standards and carrying both CE and BM TRADA Q marks if required. 

We can machine cut and finish timber to size and our mobile sawmill is ideal for producing large section structural beams up to a maximum sectional dimension of 406mm x 203mm (16” by 8”) with a maximum mill-able length of 8.2m in both beams and sawn planks.
