We British love our trees and also have a deep appreciation for what craftspeople can do with the timber. It’s deeply embedded in our psyche.
In our schools, parks, gardens, farms, and along our railway lines and roads we are lucky to have inherited some magnificent trees. Many of these trees are mature and some have a special provenance.
So, when I heard from a tree surgeon about a 150-year-old Black Walnut in a park in south London that was felled and the timber then chipped I thought that there must be a way that the timber could be better used.
After several intensive years of research and development, we can present “The Timber Market”, a site that connects people that need to have a tree felled to people who need the timber by using the people that can process the timber.
So, do take a look around, we hope you find the site useful and please feel free to contact us with any suggestions to improve.
