Chosen by Paul Hayden and our Tree team, the band-saw TTS-1200/60 now has pride of place at the very heart of timber production here at the arboretum.
As we move into the autumn, the construction work will step up a gear as we start to build the saw mill shelter and drying store.
Made from our own oak, the timber frames and cladding form a key part of our story as we follow the journey of the tree from nurtured seed to a beautifully milled piece of timber which can be used to create any number of structures and objects.
Both buildings will be constructed on site with the best view of the build from the STIHL Treetop Walkway. Here you will be able to watch the structures as they are assembled and raised. It will be a real spectacle.
It’s going to be a busy few months and over that time, the yard at Westonbirt Woodworks will change considerably. If you get a chance, do take a look as the transformation gets underway.
