Confused by what ‘seasoned’ means in structural Oak? You're not alone. At EWT we use an aging formula to help apply a bit of logic to the otherwise ephemeral qualities of structural Oak beams. It goes like this...

The green oak sawmill summer shutdown is coming up at the end of July. As of this week all the pre-shutdown lorries are full so now we're taking orders for now September lorries. If you're planning timber framing or timber cladding projects for Autumn talk to us about getting your fresh sawn timber in on time.
Our beam yard improvements mean over 2000 Oak beams in 3 levels of seasoning are now available to pick from for timber framing & carpentry . We recognise the need for better product information on dryness so we're mid process of re-listing with 3 categories, Fresh sawn beam: for 6 months from sawn date Part seasoned beam: from 7 - 24 months from sawn date Semi seasoned beam: from 25 months from sawn date. In this way the age of the sawn structural section corresponds to a level of drying / seasoning. For engineering calculations our structural timber is technically 'wet graded' as, due to section size, it cannot reach the moisture content required for 'dry graded'.
