Who we are and what we do...

Please read our Environmental Statement

The British Forest Industry has suffered for many years from cheap imports from forest destruction around the world. We aim to preserve and increase Britain's forests by sustainable management to produce a wide range of naturally durable ecologically sound products.

Our products are designed and made to order drawing on the output of local estate woodlands and FSC registered forests including amongst others The National Trust, Duchy of Cornwall, Dartmoor National Park and nationally owned Forest Enterprise estates.

Drawing on the natural properties of different timbers we do not use poisonous wood preservatives but build with species with natural preservative properties best suited for their end uses.

Use the links on the right to view a range of our products but bear in mind that these are only a sample of what we have built. We are happy to advise and design to our client's requirements.

Woodmanship is run by Mike Gardner who started working with wood after gaining an Ecological Sciences Degree with Forestry Honors in 1990. With a good team of skilled foresters and carpenters to work with, no job is too large or too small.
