You can buy European Beech for collection from Vetraland Selective Timber in London, or use our fast delivery service within the M25 area. European Beech is a versatile, widely-used hardwood where its hardness, wear-resistance, strength and excellent bending capabilities make this a mainstay choice for many woodworkers. Our Beech is quality kiln-dried timber with a straight grain and no knots. It has a pale straw color, sometimes with a pink or brown hue. Flatsawn surfaces tend to be somewhat plain, while quartersawn surfaces exhibit a minute ray fleck pattern.

Widely available across Europe, it very economically priced within its natural range. European beech trees can grow to very large sizes so wide, long lumber is commonly available for use.
