We use larch for the majority of our work:
- It lasts longer
- It's resistant to rot
- There are no chemicals involved in its production
- It is exceptionally environmentally friendly
- It looks better
- It ages better
- It is local
The main reason we use larch, is because it is irresponsible not to. Larch is one of Britain's most underused native species. You can be sure that we will only use the absolute best, ethically sourced local timber available.
The UK is contributing to the mass felling of Japanese Larch due to the trees having a disease, not the timber which is mostly used for pallet construction or firewood. The British Timber Industry is importing large quantities of fast grown pine from Northern and Eastern Europe; chemically treating them in the UK pollutes our countryside. This timber obviously has a massive carbon footprint; and yet we have tonnes of larch in our own 'back yard' which performs better, is stronger and lasts longer.
