Cadwaladr Woodland Products
Cadwaladr Woodland Products, based in Gwynedd has been trading since 1984.
The core business was initially as Forestry, Fencing and Arboriculturlal Contractors, with some firewood. A new sawmill is now established in order to make best use of local woodland resources, we are mainly processing oak, but also Douglas fir, pine, larch and cedar.
For many years firewood has been produced and we have specialised in the production of high quality hardwood and coniferous wood fuel. Accredited by membership of Woodsure-Plus as providers of Quality Assured Fuels.
We maintain large stocks of hardwood & softwood timber, which can be sold as seasoned or un-seasoned, according to preference.
Most of our timber is sourced locally from managed woodlands in the Ogwen and Conwy valleys. We are keen to utilise home grown timbers, especially our native hardwoods and pine. Wood is a re-generating resource and by encouraging the use of 'local' material, we are ensuring environmental and social sustainability, continuing the traditions of generations of woodsmen and foresters in Britain.
Our best quality timber is processed in our own sawmill, into boards, posts and beams; oak and sweet chestnut being naturally durable, is resistant to decay, and can be used without chemical treatment outside. Other timbers such as larch, Douglas fir and cedar are moderately durable, often used as external cladding, weatherboards, rain screens, or as an attractive and practical 'in-fill'.
Cadwaladr Woodland Products makes a range of rustic furniture (picnic tables & benches) and cleft oak and chestnut fencing material, can also be obtained from our yard in Bethesda.
Training courses in traditional rural skills & tools (e.g. hand cutting of wood & grass) can be arranged on request.
