What are Timber?
Timber is a type of wood which has been processed into beams and planks.
Broadly speaking, timber comes in three different types: construction timber, finishing timber and decorative timber.
Timber is a versatile raw material that offers several advantages, enabling it to be used in a wide range of applications for building and home construction
Timber can be divided into two categories, hardwoods and softwoods.
Timber is mainly used for structural purposes but has many other uses as well.
Where is Timber Used?
Timber is incredibly strong and durable. Due to it’s fibrous consistency, it can withstand a lot of pressure, so is perfect for walking over, sitting on, for holding the weight of plants and trees, or for making load bearing structures.

Types of Wood Timber?
Timber is classed as either softwood or hardwood, depending on the type of tree the timber comes from. Timber from hardwoods tends to be more dense than softwoods, though there are exceptions.
Softwoods come from coniferous trees such as pine, fir, spruce and larch.
