Green Douglas Fir

 Fresh sawn beams from Douglas Fir

Fresh sawn beams from Douglas Fir

As an alternative to Green Oak, we also cut fresh-sawn timber from certain softwoods, principally Douglas Fir and Larch - mainly sourced from British woodlands.

A native Douglas Fir can have a diameter of up to 1 metre and grows to a height of 40 metres. Douglas Fir is widely recognised for its superior strength to weight ratio with it having the highest strength rating of any softwood. These properties are very similar to Oak but Douglas Fir is 30% lighter in weight making fresh sawn Douglas Fir an excellent alternative.

Whitney Sawmills specialises in the supply of large section British Douglas fir. Logs are generally cross-cut to 12-metre lengths for transporting to the yard and Whitney Sawmill can produce beams of up to 9.5 metres in length.

The Importance of Native Douglas Fir

Whitney Sawmills supports the British timber industry by sourcing much of its Douglas Fir softwood from sustainable native woodlands.

As part of the UK charity, Woodland Heritage, Whitney Sawmills is actively seeking to increase fresh-sawn timber production direct from British woodlands to help support their ongoing management and to keep rural employment and skills alive.
