Scottish Oak and Larch
Scottish Oak and Larch deserve a page all to themselves. They are naturally durable making them the ideal timber to use outside and avoid the use of harmful preservatives. This makes using Scottish oak and larch an environmentally friendly, and beautiful building material.
Plus all our timber comes from Scotland and therefore has not had to travel half way round the world to get here further reducing your environmental impact. Timber grown in Scotland all comes under government legislation controlling felling and ensuring the future of our woodlands. More information can be found on the independent Scottish Working Woods label
