back Sawn Timber


Sawn timber is produced by sawing a log longitudinally to create pieces of sawn timber each with a square or rectangular cross section. The cross section is usually one of the “industry standard sizes” although on occasions, the timber may be sawn to a special non-standard cross section.

Saw logs are logs large enough to be cut into boards.

The Island cannot compete with mass-produced timber from abroad; however, there are local businesses which can provide small quantities of wood or wood cut to specific sizes. These are particularly useful for restoration projects.
