If you’re looking for a fantastic, renewable, sustainable material for your next DIY project, then why look at anything other than timber? This natural resource has such a long history in the building industry that it really is second to none. So, why not investigate it for yourself by visiting Vetraland Selective Timber, your local wood yard?

With a number of years of experience behind us, Vetraland can offer you high quality timber at excellent prices and we’ll even deliver it directly to your door. We know just how useful wood is for building and DIY and we’re passionate about making sure that it’s readily available for all of our customers.

Why choose timber?

  • It’s renewable, recyclable and natural

We all love a material that can be used again and again and again, and wood is one of those materials. You might think that wood is a poor choice because being natural it might start to rot, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Just looking at the survival of older buildings across the country is enough to show that with the right care, wooden beams and structures can last for centuries. 

As your local wood yard, we know just how renewable this material is. We work closely with all of our suppliers to ensure that they are only harvesting from sustainable, FSC approved sources. This is key for keeping our timber renewable, which helps to alleviate some of the pressure on the planet. The timber stocked at our local wood yard is also important because it is a non-toxic, natural material that offers minimal risk to those working and living around it.

  • It’s carbon positive

One of the key ways to look after the environment is to strive to be as carbon positive as possible (carbon positive means that we have gone beyond carbon neutral and are actually having a positive impact on the environment). Using timber from your local wood yard is a great way to support the environment and help to lower our net environmental impact in a number of ways. 

One of the reasons for this is that timber is less emission-intensive to create, unlike steel or concrete, and our desire to stock timber from the local area means that transport emissions remain as low as possible as well. Importantly, we also have to replace any trees that we cut down, which adds to the regrowth of many trees, which help to limit our carbon footprint as well.
