Hear about the availability of good construction quality softwood and hardwood timber in small sawmills throughout Scotland. Presentations by Nick Marshall, coordinator of the Association of Scottish Hardwood Sawmillers (ASHS) and by Daniel Ridley-Ellis, Institute for Sustainable Construction at Napier University

Scotland has a resource of timber that comes from both the public and private estates.  It is suitable for a range of uses from firewood through construction timber to characterful pieces used by furniture makers.

Connecting the parts of this supply chain has been and remains a challenge for the industry.  Discussion will include how to grade this timber to satisfy structural engineers.

If you’ve used Scottish timber – from a local sawmill or using a mobile sawmill directly from the forest – you’re welcome to share your experience (bring a max of five slides for a five minute talk)

Free entrance – refreshments from 6pm for those that come early!
