Hardwood timber is sourced from broad-leaved, angiosperm, deciduous trees which shed their leaves on an annual basis and distribute nutrients throughout the wood.
Strong and durable, this type of timber is best suited to projects that require strength and longevity. For example, hardwood is often sourced for furniture, construction and flooring.
In comparison to softwood, hardwood has a more condensed and complex structure – this is what makes the timber so strong. Hardwood trees also take longer to grow and tend to be thicker than softwood timber. Due to the refined and resilient quality of hardwood, it is typically more expensive to purchase than softwood. But not to worry, we can provide you with a great deal on cheap hardwood supplies.
Hardwoods can be broken down into the categories of European, Temperate and Tropical hardwoods. Common types of hardwood include Oak, Meranti, Ash, Iroko and Sapele. Here at International Timber, we stock these products as well as a range of alternatives, such as American Cherry, to Beech and Maple.
