Support British woodlands by using British wood.

Vastern Timber is the UK's largest and most established hardwood sawmill and has been manufacturing British Timber Products, all from locally grown timber, for over 100 years. From British logs cut in our own sawmills we offer an extensive range of sawn hardwoods for joinery and furniture making, as well as oak beams, timber cladding and hardwood flooring for commercial and residential buildings. Please visit us in Wiltshire to browse samples and discuss your project in our oak framed showroom, or come and select from our stocks of planed and sawn timber boards. With over 4000M3 of sawn and machined timber in stock we have plenty to choose from.

Supporting British Woodlands

At Vastern Timber we understand the importance of third party certification, but we believe that sustainability should be more than a logo. Current estimates are that only 6% of the hardwoods that we consume in the UK are British grown, and yet, only 40% of our mixed broadleaf woodlands are managed. This situation needs to change. When you buy British grown timber you are sustaining your native woodlands by directly supporting the management and upkeep of this valuable and beautiful resource.
