Whippletree is a specialist supplier of native oak timber, with over 75,000 cubic feet of quality timber in stock. We have been in business for over 30 years, and our roots in forestry contracting give us a deep understanding of the timber industry.
As conscientious English oak suppliers, we carefully source our oak from sustainable forests in the UK, and we use state-of-the-art drying and milling techniques to ensure that our timber is of the highest quality.
In the UK, new trees must be planted in place of felled trees within three years. This ensures that our forests are sustainable and that we continue to reap the benefits of trees, such as clean air, water, and wildlife habitat.
We offer a wide range of native oak products, including flooring, cladding, beams, and joinery timber. Whether you are looking for new oak flooring for your building renovation project or structural timbers, Whippletree can help.
