An Arboreta project is undertaken always with careful consideration to the building’s surroundings and the project’s environmental impact.
Our Arboreta timber frames are constructed from Green Oak, chosen not only for its strength and beauty but also because it’s so, well, green. Green Oak is carbon neutral, sustainable and occurs naturally, therefore doesn’t require large amounts of energy to manufacture, and, though it’s the oldest building method employed today, the traditional oak frame is thoroughly modern; being the most environmentally friendly too. At Arboreta we select superior QPA grade European timbers and take care to source our oak only from sustainably managed forests with a proven programme of felling and replacement. Our building systems are approved by BM TRADA.
