Transforming British Woods

Better British
Woods

We use intense heat to reconfigure locally grown wood. No chemicals. Nothing nasty. Just a more durable, stable and consistent material.

Better British
Woodlands

By using British species, we’re increasing the demand for native broadleaf woodlands. This supports local species and rural jobs, while reducing the environmental impact of global transportation.

5 Reasons Why

Love local

Why import wood from thousands of miles away when it grows just down the road? Brimstone is all grown in England and Wales – usually within 100 miles of our sawmill.

Tried and Tested

The clever Scandinavians did all the hard work developing this process. We did a whole lot of testing just to be sure. It works.

Five reasons 02

Conservation costs

Woodlands rely on income from selling wood to pay for conservation work. Buying Brimstone means you’re supporting tree planting and helping to increase biodiversity.

Five reasons 04 v2

Natural beauty

It looks amazing. In fact, one complaint we get is that it looks too good to leave outside.

Five reasons 03 v2

Nothing but heat

That’s it. No nasty chemicals, just intense heat. Heating wood above 160°C is an age-old way of preserving it.
