This means prioritising trees that are diseased, or have fallen naturally. Currently we’re using much Ash and Larch due to the diseases they are suffering from nationally.
For every tree that is felled a maximum of 70% of it gets used. Using all of what we take from the woods is imperative. We attempt to design with timber that others discard.
Any timber we can’t use from the workshop (including our sawdust) we put back in the soil, increasing the cellular biomass, and enriching the microbiology.
Despite forestry standards, blackmarket timber from rain forested regions is
everywhere. We won’t touch it with a bargepole.
Our mission is to get beautiful and affordable eco-forested timber products to
as many people as possible.
We are pro-heritage and human skills, we also look to incorporate the latest technologies, as long as it doesn’t threaten the continuation of British wood-culture.
Each tree has a story, we endeavour to let that story be seen in the items we make, rather than forcing a design on to any piece of wood we choose.
