We’ve expanded beyond our roots to manufacture and supply the highest quality, certified products for a wide range of industries, including fencing, landscaping, cladding, construction, DIY, decking, and packaging.

As part of BSW Group, our integrated capabilities ensure we have a partner, and a market, for everything. We grow-to-size, harvest to order, and replant to replenish. We use the whole of the log – even sawdust, shavings, chips and bark, which supply the pulp and paper, chipboard, horticultural sectors.

Our sister company, BSW Energy, also makes use of our timber co-products, manufacturing clean, renewable wood fuel solutions to power everything from biomass plants to stoves and barbeques.

Protecting the future of the world’s forests

Sustainability is an integral part of our business. After all, timber is the ultimate renewable material.

Since 2012, we’ve invested £125m into supporting sustainable forestry. All our timber is certified, meaning we source our material from well-established, ethically managed sources.

Chain of Custody certification traces wood from forest to distribution, ensuring you receive legal timber from environmentally safe, socially beneficial and economically viable forests.
