About Elephant Timber Supplies

 Who Are We?

Elephant Timber Supplies is a small family run business that supplies unique pieces of timber to individuals who are looking for a piece of wood like no other.

Located in the heart of East Sussex, we concentrate only on supplying timber that has been grown locally.  We do not import any timber from overseas, and we are proud to say that all of our timber comes from trees felled due to either ill health, storm damage, or because they have outgrown their intended space in domestic gardens.

My name is Carl Foreman, and I have been running a tree surgery company for the last 18 years.  For some time I have been convinced that there must be an alternative purpose for some of the timber we fell instead of it ending up on the log pile destined for peoples wood burners.

In 2016 we set up Elephant Timber supplies to find a solution.
After investing heavily in a portable Woodmizer sawmill, and also suitable equipment to be able to move heavy trunks, we find ourselves currently in a position (after a very steep learning curve) to be able to offer some absolutely beautiful, unique pieces of characterful timber.

We very much hope, that these pieces of a once majestic tree get a second chance to live on again by being crafted into something people love!
