Timber processing

In Scotland the small-scale timber processing sector largely consists of small scale static and mobile sawmillers, many of which are involved with making flooring, cladding and furniture.

We work with the Association of Scottish Hardwood Sawmillers and Scottish Furniture Makers Association to promote the range, quality and use of Scottish grown hardwoods and niche softwoods as well as provide guidance and resources to help develop this sector.

Available grants

harvesting and processing grant is available to support the purchase of new equipment to increase the management, harvesting and processing of timber from small, undermanaged and farm woodlands.
