Oak framing is an environmentally friendly construction method and at Welsh Oak Frame the team work closely with self-builders who want to design and build a green home with an ecological structure.

What sets oak apart from many other construction materials is that when it is felled and used in this way, it is a carbon neutral material, which does not release carbon dioxide. Whereas other construction materials such as steel and concrete release carbon dioxide when manufactured, wood naturally absorbs it.

Another key benefit when building with oak is that wood is a renewable source so it is always possible to replant trees to replace those that have been used for construction.

Welsh Oak Frame’s marketing manager, Carol Parry says: “When you choose an oak framing company, it is important to check where the wood is sourced from. At Welsh Oak Frame, all of our oak comes from sustainable European forests which are ultimately kinder on the planet.”

“You also need to think about how building your home will impact on the environment around you. We have an association with the Wildlife Trust which works with us to ensure that we respect surrounding habitats.”
