Greenheart – The World’s Strongest Timber  

Our reclaimed Greenheart originally grew in South America, before being imported into the UK for use in marine construction many, many years ago. 

Greenheart is known as one of the strongest and most durable timber in the world. 

The tree grows tall, and slow, ensuring the grain is straight.   


Greenheart Skimmings in Garden Construction Projects 

Reclaimed Greenheart Skimmings strength and durability make them the obvious choice for sustainable commercial and residential garden construction projects. 

In this blog we walk you through every step of the process, and explain why Greenheart Skimmings are far superior to softwood scaffolding boards when it comes to material longevity.
