Co2 Timber Helping you to Help our Planet

Co2Timber home grown western red cedar As a traditional sawmill we mill straight from felled Cedar, Larch, Douglas Fir, and Sweet Chestnut trees. Sourcing our timber from within the UK and milling it into a high quality product that is suitable for internal and external cladding flooring, fencing, sheds, field shelters, car ports, Yorkshire Boarding, garden architectural projects, and many more applications.

We generally recommend Larch as a structural timber e.g. Window frames, sills, furniture, flooring and the like because it is the hardest of the soft woods. Western red cedar on the other hand has traditionally been used for external cladding, it's lighter, more durable and by nature has stood the test of time. Also great for summer houses, green houses, conservatory, boat building, garden offices/workshops, all sorts of timber constructions along with decking rails, balusters, spindles, Yorkshire Boarding, raised beds and is recommend as a timber for bee hives.

All the timber we supply has a low carbon footprint without compromising the quality of the timber. Here at CO2 Timber we aim to keep our carbon footprint and that of the products we produce to a minimum and encourage sustainable practices. We use our off cuts in our commercial wood burning stove to heat our workshop in winter and provide heat for our kiln drying process.

We supply to Trade, DIY's, Contractors, Builders, Manufactures, Architects. Being a sawmill we offer a bespoke service for all those non standard sizes planks boards and cladding and can cut to size and finish as required.

Sustainability

The code for sustainable homes is the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes. It aims to reduce carbon emissions and promote higher standards of sustainable design above the current minimum standards set out by building regulations.

Code for Sustainable Homes

The Code works by awarding new homes a rating from Level 1 to Level 6, based on their performance against 9 sustainability criteria which are combined to assess the overall environmental impact. Level 1 is entry level above building regulations, and Level six is the highest, reflecting exemplary developments in terms of sustainability. We should all strive to achieve the level of CODE 6 please see the following link for further information.
