FSC Certified Timber

Saving tropical timber for future generations

Ashwells Reclaimed Timber is the UK’s leading tropical timber reclamation specialist.  From our timber yard and mill in Essex, we reclaim tropical hardwoods such as Greenheart, Jarrah, and Keruing; repurposing the timber for future use in an FSC® certified process that prevents further deforestation, saves energy and mineral resources, and protects architectural history.

“The rainforest is disappearing, fast.  That’s why we’re collaborating with civil engineering contractors and landscape architects, saving tropical timber, and enabling a more sustainable built environment.”
