Buying British Oak

As an environmentally friendly company who is dependent upon nature for our livelihood, we believe strongly in the use of sustainable, local timber. We create outdoor structures that are continuously at the mercy of the Great British weather and we choose to use British oak for its supreme level of durability. British oak lasts much longer than treated softwood without leeching toxic chemicals into the environment, meaning that the slight increase in initial cost is largely offset by the extended life of the structure in addition to the morally correct decision of preserving our natural world as much as possible.

Sustainable Oak Supply

All of the oak that we use is locally sourced to reduce on transport emissions and is FSC certified or equivalent. We do everything that we can to ensure that our oak suppliers are providing us with sustainable timber because without doing so would lead to long term damage upon the environment.

Where Do We Buy British Oak?

Sustainable British oak is not in abundant supply and due to our large demand for it, we have used many different sources in the local area. By 2017, our demand was becoming so great that we were struggling to find exactly what we needed, when we needed it, so we decided to buy our own sawmill and start cutting oak ourselves. This new venture operates under the name of Quercast Sawmilling: Norfolk’s oak supplier and hardwood sawmill. Thus our British oak supplier is now us!
