British Oak Logs

Britain is famous for its oak trees and woodland. We have a higher percentage of our land covered with woodland than any other European country. British foresters invented the silvicultural techniques that the French still use to such great effect. It is vital that British Oak crops are harvested and used to ensure that more crops are planted and managed for future generations to use. Our Oak woodland crops provide valuable habitats, wildlife has no preference for saw-logs or firewood trees, growing saw-logs generates the income to keep our forests healthy.

Oak loves growing in Britain, cool wet summers, mild wet winters and fertile soils. Happy oak trees grow fast, with dense durable timber. Oak grown on the British clay and loam soils is more than a match for any continental grown trees, but with the major advantage of having fewer timber miles. No timber is improved for having travelled thousands of miles before being made into something.

At Timberpride we love trees and forests, we started out in business planting and managing woodland. Knowing where your oak grew gives us enormous satisfaction.

“I had the pleasure of dealing with your company on Friday when I was trying to locate two small pieces of oak for decorative purposes. Whilst I imagine in the grand scheme of things, this was a small order, the help and customer support I got from your colleague Sarah was tremendous, even arranging for the wood to be left at an alternative location for collection to suit me. I would like to pass on my thanks, it was a pleasure to deal with such a customer driven business.”

Dawn Wilson – Tremendous Customer Service

“Just a quick thank you to you and your team for the quick turnaround on the oak that was supplied. The timber was just as requested and was of a good quality. We will be using you again soon. Many thanks.”

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help with designing and delivering on time the lovely oak A-frame for my coach house. Everything went extremely well and to plan, including personal delivery of some of the oak from Alec, the owner and his son. In this day and age of online sales and aggressive pricing it's a great experience to be able to walk into your lovely oak offices, meet the owner, take a look behind the scenes and at your oak waiting to be hand crafted into your designs. It's a true Cotswold experience and well worth the small premium for the excellent service and to be able to engage first hand with all the processes." Bob Davison
