Let’s consider the wood sector with a 360-degree view…

The raw timber (with bark) is used in many fields : stanchion, building, draining, etc.Human beings have been using wood since the Middle Age to build on less supporting soils. A buried or immersed timber will not rot and it is not needed to be further finished which results in money saving. Raw timber can be pointed.

The first finishing is the forestly peeling or cambio peeling, by which most of the bark is removed : those are roughly debarked. This type of finishing is requested in some fields because the bark might be a problem in the industrial process or affect the color of the finished product.

The second finishing is the peeling or debarking which results in a round log which is perfectly smooth and white (or rosy in the case of pine, douglas or larch firs). The white peeled products keep their natural conicity and are sought after since very natural and authentical.

The third finishing is the calibrating/ machining which results in a constant diameter on the whole length.
They are used in many areas of use, as landscaping, playgrounds and horse fencing.

Our domestic softwoods are naturally unsustainable. In order to increase the durability, kiln-dried or naturally dried timbers are treated under pressure in autoclave tanks.

Thanks to several vacuums and pressures, the conservation product (green or brown salt solutions (Impralith/ Tanalith) or creosote(coal-derived)) gets into the wood cells and protects the timber against mushrooms, mould or insects.

The creosote having been banned in many countries, we offer a salt alternative : SP treatment, in which a higher concentration gets into the timber, during longer treatment cycles on 25% KD pine : the timber becomes deep chocolate brown and is a very lasting product.

Similar to the round wood, sawn material have different finishing stages. The rough sawn lumbers can be of several qualities (choice or class) : 3rd and 2nd choice from beetle infected timbers might be blue, knotty, wany, cracked; to be used in certain industrial process (wall form/ pallets, etc.); 1st choice in fresh timber for the garden wood or building. Those rough sawn logs can get dried and autoclave treated.

The planned wood : the rough boards get planned to get a very smooth surface and very precise dimensions; they can be grooved, dried and impregnated.

The finger-joined material and laminated lumbers are both from planned logs connected with glue to get very long dimensions for framing.


Plantation stake or post, stake for trees, class IV treated hop pole, tomatoes pole and bean pole, stake for olive trees; stake for fences for cattle or ovine; forest wooden fence, wooden straw for cow udder, anti-hail pole.

Wooden horse fences : round post and half-round rail treated in autoclave under pressure class IV, bridle path and lunging pen, barn and shelter for horses. Horse bedding with wood shaving or wood pellets.

Garden wood : trees trellising (Espaliers), garden edging in impregnated machined timber or oak sleeper treated or not, earth retaining. Round logs house. Colored wood shaving for parterres and parking; pine shaving for landscaping.

Guardrail, edging in machined wood for signposting walking trails, mountain-bike routes, utility pole, impregnated wooden electrical pole.

Driven wooden pile and beaten stake into the ground, wooden post supporting the construction (prop, strut or stanchion), foundation pile, draining pile and post for the construction of storm basin. Lumber, board, beam, laminated wood, KVH, finger-jointed lumber and planned lumber. Round wood for frame and pole for the roof construction. Timber frame, round wooden beam. Terrace decking and snow guard and panel for sound insulation. Landscaping sleeper in pine or oak, autoclave treated or not.

Electrical pile and telephone pole impregnated class IV.

Machined wood for slide and swing, teepee pole and scout pole.

Wood shaving, scarp of wood, pulp wood, panel wood, pallet wood, wood chips, wood for cogeneration, paper wood, log and sawlog veneer, beetle infested wood for export and the production of wooden furniture.

Fire wood, kindling for wood stove and barbecue, ecologic fire starter with wood straw, pellet, match.


Among multiple wood species (hardwood and softwood), origin (local or domestic wood/ imported timber), types (round/ sawn) and subcategory or finish (for the round timbers : raw/ cambio peeled/ white peeled/ machined or calibrated timber/ kiln-dried/ treated or impregnated under pressure in autoclave tanks creosote or salt (CC treatment green or brown or SP);and for the sawn material : roughly swan, planed wood, fresh, 1st, 2nd or 3rd choice or class, laminated wood, sinesto treated, kiln-dried, autoclave treated or impregnated), there is a cosmos of possibilities.

Garden wood, industrial wood, construction wood, etc.

B2B (business to business or wholesale in wood) or retail.
