    1) Local Sourcing

    Our timber is sourced exclusively in a sustainable way from local managed woodlands. This way ensuring we keep responsiblity and sustainability at the forefront throughout our entire process.

    2) Timber Felling

    The process of thinning supplies us with a large majority of timber. Thinning is important for our parks, allowing diversification of the habitat for wildlife, removal of unsafe trees and improves the long-term development of woodlands, along with a list of other benefits.

  • Hardwood timber haulage from forest

    3) Haulier Transport

    The timber is then transported to our site. Being sourced locally, it does not have to travel far, keeping road miles to a minimum. This subsequently reduces our carbon emissions and adds to the sustainability of the production process.

    4) Splitting

    This next stage is key, splitting the wood. This allows the drying process to be sped up, exposing the inner surface area of the wood to the elements. The outer bark is like a skin, which holds the water in, the key is to open up the wood to extract this moisture.

    5) Drying

    The most important part of the production process is drying the wood. Whether seasoning it for a prolonged period of time or kiln drying it, this is of paramount importance to ensure a high quality finished product.
