Here at PB Hardwoods, we both import and export European Hardwood. We export from our site in Liverpool all over the world. If you are an export customer from outside the U.K please see our export page on how to order your hardwood.
European hardwoods like European Beech is mainly found in Western and Central Europe but can be found as far south as Turkey. They can grow for 300 hundred years with heights of 50meters. Often favored with joiners and carpenters, due to the wood being easy to work with.
The heartwood is light in color quite like a biscuit, usually straight grained. However, irregular or cross-grained material can occur depending on growth conditions. European Beech dries slowly and has a tendency to check, split or develop honeycombing. This is why careful handling, air drying and kilning are important with Beech.
The uses for European steamed Beech include furniture manufacturing and cabinet making, joinery parquet strips door manufacturing and table tops.
If you would like to order any European Beech then please feel free to call us to check our stock. If we don’t have the amount you need we can order it in for you.
When requesting your European Steamed Beech please remember to state if you would it to be FSC® or PEFC™ certified. We are more than happy to supply the certification stated to support sustainable forestry.
