Fresh Sawn  Oak Beams (Green Oak)

Fresh Sawn Oak Beams (Green Oak)

Fresh sawn oak has been used in construction for centuries. Many historic buildings, barns and Church roofs were constructed using fresh sawn oak. Often referred to as green oak, because of its age rather than its colour, Fresh sawn oak has been used in construction since medieval times and is still used today.

During the lengthy drying out process Green Oak will move and some surface splits will appear. To most people this all adds to the character of the beam but if you haven't bought oak beams before it is something to be aware of. We carry a large stock of green oak of various sizes, but our main stock sizes are listed below:

All our green oak beams are available for delivery, throughout northern England. We have a crane lorry available, so offloading isn’t a problem.

Please note; Our green oak beams are stored outside. This is our preferred option for storage, as it gives the natural moisture in the oak time to dry slowly. We have found over the years that this process is far superior to drying under cover, where the beams can dry out too fast. We always have beams available from 1 month to 12 months air dried (partially air dried). These will usually be darker than fresh sawn oak, but can be sanded or planned to reveal the original oak colour. Partially air dried beams are usually very popular with oak framer’s and we actually make our own structures using these beams.
