Frank Pouwer: ‘I have been travelling around Europe for 15 years looking for oak beams, but I have never seen any of this size before”

These are by far the longest and thickest oak beams we have ever had in stock. A single beam can weigh a few thousand kilos. The trees are estimated to be between 150 and 250 years old, and were located in the ‘Parc Naturel Régional du Gâtinais’ near Fontainebleau, France. They were felled under the supervision of the French Forestry Commission; every season they designate a number of trees as ready for harvesting. Thinning the forest ensures that young trees have a chance to develop into fully-fledged oaks. This rejuvenation process is important, particularly because young oaks absorb much more CO2 than older oaks.

Come and visit us in Doorwerth and check out the long oak beams.
