Best Local Timber Merchants

Timber is a beautiful, strong and renewable material that has an endless number of uses. As your local timber merchant, we know just how important timber is to so many projects. With its long life and its ability to be reused and recycled over and over again, it truly is the ideal, renewable material. Timber is also being used to help tackle the climate crisis because it requires trees to be grown, helping to convert carbon dioxide back into oxygen, contributing to a brighter, healthier planet. As your local timber merchants, we’re committed to ensuring that we do good with this great material and we can assure you that all of our timber is sustainable sourced and certified by the FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council). 

What types of timber are there?

Timber can really be split into two different forms: softwood and hardwood. As your local timber merchants, we make it our business to ensure a variety of both are stocked. The type of timber depends on where it came from, hardwoods usually come from broad-leaf trees, which usually take about 150 years to grow before they’re harvested. These tend to include oak, ash and beech trees. 

On the other hand, softwoods come from coniferous trees, like pine, fir and larch, which tend to be harvested after about 40 years (although there are certainly exceptions to this rule). These different types of wood are useful for different purposes depending on what you want to use them for. To find out more about this, you can talk to us at your local timber merchants about which is better today.

What can timber be used for?

One of the great things about timber is that every part of the tree can be used. No matter what you’re planning on doing, your local timber merchants will have the right type of timber for your project. You can use timber for beams, planks and boards, all of which can be used for construction work, alongside fencing and floorboards. Other times, timber can be used to make furniture, which is great because it is long lasting and recyclable, which can help to eliminate the issues that we face with fast furniture fashion.
