Whippletree is one of the UK’s premier English Oak suppliers with huge experience in providing Oak to many of Britain’s stately homes and historic buildings including a long list of Manor Homes and celebrity mansions for both new build and renovation requirements.
Our stock resources sit at over six acres of yards, storage sheds, drying rooms and kilns with over 70,000 cubic feet of Oak at various stages of maturity from Green Oak, to 5-7 year Air Dried Oak. We also have the added benefit of our own Biomass Fired Super Green kilns (fired by waste Oak of course), enabling us to offer Kiln Dried Oak for projects that require this grade.
We are renowned for our Certified Guaranteed Traceability as we source all of our English Oaks from known woodlands where we tag each tree before harvesting and replanting. The tag stays with the tree throughout it’s milling and drying process until it is ready to be converted to the requirements of our customers. Even at this stage, each piece remains identity tagged to its original source.
This enables us to provide a Certificate Of Origin to pass on to the client or property owner for wall display if required, enabling them to proudly display the history and the heritage of their English Oak project.
We supply contractors, joinery companies, historic buildings and retailers across the UK with a range of products including Oak beams, planks, weatherboarding and flooring, plus a range of Oak, Larch and Chestnut lath and lime products.
Our technical department is able to discuss special projects in detail with designers Architects, Specifiers and Historic Building Officers and our wealth of experience across many fantastic projects, all of which are well documented, will assist you to get your Oak project ‘over the line’ in the easiest, safest and most prestigious way.

David Hewitt was delighted with the Oak - and it takes a lot to please him. Very clear, very dry and even had a slight sweeping curve in the grain, end to end - highly desirable in a boats keel! Many thanks.
