The WoodStock report
Until now we only had yearly sales figures, Forestry Commission data & our gut instincts to go on. Now we have hard evidence about where our British hardwoods stand (nice forestry pun there) in the whole scheme of UK yearly hardwood consumption & the numbers smart a bit, we can tell you.
Overall though, we feel excited. Why?
Homegrown timber has never has so much interest, support & commitment from industry, media, government. Even the high street (go Heals !). Grown in Britain have contributed to this change in culture & last weeks #GiBweek2016 showcased some of what has been possible. Their WoodStock seminar at #APF2016 was the launch of this report & opened up discussion for what we do to address the opportunities revealed.
Do you have your own plans for increasing the use of British hardwoods? We’d love to hear them…
Caught on film...
Following the success of the Woodlands.TV video which has already had 12,000 views (!!!) we thought we’d try ta film of our own to help tell our story so when you click the link you’ll get transported straight to our YouTube Channel where we’re collecting videos that we like as well as videos we make. There’s a lot of great woodworking going on out there & it turns out woodworkers are great at talking about their subject.
Beware, it get’s addictive! And if you see anything you think we might like like us know won’t you?
Having a YouTube moment?
Don’t stop now! Have a look at EnglishWoodlandsTV . Coffee break sized videos of wood & trees!
Do you want to join our timber team?
We’re growing & changing & the world of wood is our proverbial oyster.
As more customers come for our wood we want to provide more ways to make them happy.
You could be just what we’re looking for!
But we’re not just looking for another pair of hands to the pump, we’re looking for a new member of the timber team.
There’s no doubt that skill, knowledge & experience in the appropriate woodworking areas are important to us (we take wood seriously round here) but depth of character, a cheerful disposition & an openness to learn new things are also high on our ‘wishlist’ for a new colleague.
Sound like you, or someone you know?
The vacancy is in our timber yard at Cocking on the South Downs, working with our wood, in our machine shop &, crucially, with our precious customers.
