Oak boules & sawn timber :
Our oak comes from own forest exploitations : direct from the forest to you as a customer.
We buy logs
from state forests and from private owners. After many years of experience we know
the good regions.
We have permanent teams of harvesters, loggers and transporters.
are debarked (to avoid the risk on worm), after sawing we condition and dry in our
own company in Maasmechelen (Hout Service NV).
Having the entire process in-house we are sure about the quality and we can offer competitive prices. We offer fresh, air dried or kiln dried.
Optimal storage, conditioning and drying garantees best quality :
Wood deserves the best care you can give it.
That’s the reason we built a unique space-saving & efficient storage and drying system.
All wood is properly stacked 80 cm above the ground on big pallets (50 tons) to air dry in the wind and then kiln dry in our kilns. A unique internal transport system moves these pallets quickly to the desired zone: fast drying zone / slow drying zone / protected zone / kilns ...
We determine the right place in function of the weather conditions, the type of wood, the thickness and the moisture content. We dry maximally in the wind, but can control by moving the pallets, to avoid cracks in dry periods and discolorations in humid periods. We strive to put the wood in the drying kiln, only when the fiber saturation point is reached. This gives optimal results both for the physical properties of the dried wood and in terms of cost. All wood is stacked under roof, protected from wind, sun and rain.
This way of working is very ECO-friendly and delivers the best conditions to dry your wood.
The system is developed in-house and is based on years of experience.
We take care of our own wood but also condition and dry wood for third parties.
Cut to your specifications :
For optimization of your specific needs, good planning is strongly preferred, so that we can deliver exactly according to your wishes. Selection is then already made in the forest and the logs are sawn on your preferred thicknesses, lengths, widths and quality. The boules can be delivered fresh sawn or further conditioned, dried and stored in the most ideal conditions, for delivery on demand.
