OAK TIMBER

Sometimes we want to make the house have a feeling of warmth in the jungle or even the feeling you would call wild, at this time wood comes into action. For durability and something that will last us for a very long time then oak beams come into play. The place you want to use the timber in will determine the kind of beam to acquire. The same kind of oak wood you use in your living room will not look or be the same as the type you will use on the worktops in your kitchen.

The wood in your kitchen will be subjected to a lot of moisture and stress and this will change the way the old oak will be looking like in the near future. The conditions that the timber will be submitted to will stick to it. To make sure that the changes that have taken place in the timber are not visible then it is necessary to make sure that the oak is maintained and given the correct and right treatment at all times. The oak must first be dried in the correct way so as to achieve all this.

As soon as the Oak tree is fell then it needs to be dried. The branches of the oak tree first have to slashed and planked. For some oak trees in the UK they can be as tall as 40 meters, for such then they have to be cut into two. To prevent cracks forming on the wood then the process of drying has to be carried out in a controlled manner. At all cost, the cracks should be avoided in the wood to make it usable.
In the United Kingdom, the prices of tree poles will be different from one vendor to another. Even if you want a large number of poles or a small number of poles in maybe to put above you water poles or just a limited number in your garden. All this can be availed depending on where the order is made, and the time the order is made. when the order is made then they can also cut freshly sawn oak beams.

Freshly sawn oak beams, also known as ‘green oak’ beams, start seasoning as soon as they are fell. How the wood looks would be a different way compared to the way it look before it dried. At the rate of one inch per year the green oak tree will take approximately five year to fully dry up for proper use. If your project requires green oak beams then even those can be found from this sellers.
