The wood we use
At Timber Wright we use only Winter felled Trees, mostly Air Dried White Pine and have access to Eastern Hemlock, Yellow Cedar, Red Cedar ,Douglas Fir in Extra long lengths and Extra large sizes. In winter the tree is in a dormant state, and the excess liquid used for growing is returned to the ground and it retains only enough liquid in its Root System to begin growing again in the Spring. Therefore this is the time of the year when it has the least amount of moisture content. When a Log or Timber begins to Dry it Shrinks and because the outer part of the Tree, which is called the Sapwood ,Shrinks first and the inner part called the Heartwood cannot, the outer part actually tears away from itself causing huge cracks .These cracks are directly Proportionate to the amount of liquid that is in the Timber and in turn which season it has been Felled in. Spring and Summer & early Autumn are the worst time for felling because the Tree is in a Vegetative state and is working to Grow its Annual growth Ring and is Saturated with Liquid.
Felling in Winter produces High Quality Logs & Timbers with very little Cracking, which is esthetically pleasing , retains its high Insulation value and is Structurally Sound for all of our Log & Timber Projects.
We use high quality wood only.
The wood used in your house is as important as a master who builds it.
