Crocadon is a Cornish sawmill situated within Pentillie Estate in St. Mellion, just 20 minutes from the city of Plymouth, on the Devon and Cornwall border.
Mike Mann established the sawmill in 2002 after spending 30 years as a forester largely in the South West of England. Mike's speciality was managing woodlands commercially whilst also maintaining good wildlife havens through perpetual silviculture schemes. With a strong passion for home grown timber and a desire to support British forestry, Mike has set up the sawmill in order to offer a supply of English hardwoods direct to all users ranging from the construction industry through to the hobbyist.
Crocadon is dedicated to selecting the right timber for the job. We can offer advice based on a long history of forestry experience in selecting suitable timber, which considers design and specifications to obtain the very best from our materials.
We supply a range of timber specialising in sawing and drying English hardwoods, with which we manufacture a range of high quality products. We house our own drying kilns which have a maximum capacity to dry lengths up 12.0 m. Our milling capacity stretches up to 16.0 m. We specialise in English Oak, English Hardwoods and quality softwoods, in particular European Larch and Douglas Fir. We can also source speciality timbers for boat building such as grown curves and mast timber.
We only buy timber from woodlands which are being restored or managed as part of a conservation programme, and Mike always inspect woods to ensure that sustainable management is taking place.
If you are looking for English hardwoods either green, air dried or kiln dried then browse our on-line product catalogue. We have large stocks of structural oak beams, oak floorboards and many other forms of these versatile and beautiful timbers. If you are not sure what type or grade of timber you require then check here for timber buying advice.
