Our Timber

 

We have always been keen to prevent the decline in British Woodlands by promoting the use of locally grown timber as a sustainable resource and this is why we have resisted the trend to source our timber across Europe and the World. Interesting Timbers is a traditional sawmill, we have continued to buy trees locally, often being involved from before a tree is felled, through to loading on the timber lorry, sawing it into boards and eventually drying it and preparing it for use by furniture makers, craftsmen and women, designers, artists, home improvers, builders and architects. There is often a story to go with special trees and we try to pass these details on to the end user of the timber spending time with you and assisting in the matching of timber to client.
