What sets us apart form other timber suppliers is we know the history of our timber: where it was grown,
when/why it fell, how old it was when it fell and in the case of some of the Sweet Chestnut who planted
it and why.
We only sell timbers grown in the UK, most of our timber has been grown within Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire.
As no two pieces of wood are the same, the above images showing timber colour and grain patten are for guidance only.
We only stock rough sawn boards.
Prices are regularly updated and may change at any time, certain wide boards may be subject to a
premium being added but our prices are a guide and discounts maybe available for larger orders.
Timber is priced per cubic foot (cu/ft)
1 cu/ft is equivalent to 2 boards @ 9" (225mm) wide x 1" (25mm) thick x 96" (2.4m) long.
Air: timber that's been allowed to dry naturally for at least 2yrs
Green: timber freshly milled in the last 12 months.
N.B. Viewing of timber stocks is strictly by appointment only

Recently milled squared edged Sweet Chestnut boards cut from a tree grown in our own woodland in
Sherwood Forest sticked out to dry.

We have recently bought 2 large Oak trees from a local property here in Sherwood Forest, these trees are producing beautiful grained wide boards up to 27" wide as can be seen in the photo below.
The image below is of a Sycamore board.
The tree has been damaged by water ingress and the subsequent rot has caused the timber to change colour.
we refer to timber with this as spaltered
Contrary to popular belief, woodlands if left alone do not flourish, they need human intervention in the form of tree management.
As part of our on going management of an ancient woodland in Sherwood Forest, several of the large dying Sweet Chestnut trees are being felled to make way for the younger and stronger trees to grow.
This woodland was once a coppice plantation but many of the trees have been untouched for years and as is the nature of Sweet Chestnut they mature at about 70yrs of age after which they start to die. It's at this point they need to be felled, for unlike a dying Oak tree that can support over 2500 species of insect, invertebrates and wildlife a dying Sweet Chestnut tree is known only to support around 200.
