Environment

Timber felled locally on the Novar Estate is transported the short distance to the Novar Sawmill for processing into finished sizes to meet customers’ requirements. Bespoke large sizes are available on request. With items as large as 5 foot diameter not out-with our production range.

Locally grown sustainable Larch, Douglas Fir, Spruce, Pine and a range of Hardwoods are available for our production.

The estate woodlands are managed to the environmental and sustainability standards outlined in the UK Forestry Standard and the UK Woodland Assurance Scheme and are certified as such within the Tilhill Group Certification Scheme SA-FM/COC-004552.

The Novar Sawmill utilises modern equipment to ensure consistency in the quality of finished product while maximizing log usage and production levels. By minimising waste this helps to support a competitive price. By-products are collected and sold on to be used in other manufacturing processes. By utilising all of the log and its by-products it eliminates waste and is more environmentally friendly.

After sawing the product can be kiln dried prior to machining into finished items to our customer’s final specification. Flooring, skirting, machined cladding, T & G, half lap and decking are an example of our finished product.

Pressure treatment can be done on request.

Bespoke quality timber outbuildings are now part of or supply range, with storage sheds and animal shelters, these are just a few of the items we have produced for our happy customers.
