Our most common native trees include larch, Douglas Fir, Oak, Ash, Hazel, Birch, Scots Pine, Rowan and Willow. Eventually, people brought other trees, such as beech, sycamore, horse chestnut, spruce, larch and fir to Ireland.
Adanack loves to work with Irish timbers but stresses that they can be hard to source due to limited availability. Let us know well in advance what timber you are looking to work with and we can check availability via our network of suppliers if it is available, if not we we will be happy to discuss with you your other options so that your project deadline can be comfortably met. We could cover loads of species native to Ireland here but we are going to highlight below the 2 most popular choices that meet the wide range of jobs that we supply for.
Larch sawn timber is valued for its tough waterproof and durable qualities. It is a top quality timber in great demand for exterior cladding of buildings, panels and fencing, pergolas and boat building. It can also be used for interior panelling and mouldings.
Larch is very popular right now with construction companies and architects due to its wide range of properties suited to their requirements. Larch is resistant to rot even when in contact with the ground. The remarkable qualities and unique performance characteristics of Larch have led to it being called 'The Tree Of Eternity'. Here at Adanack we supply Irish Larch when available or in stock or alternatively Siberian Larch if supply is not possible within Ireland as it has exactly the same qualities as its Irish version.
Douglas Fir is one of the best known wood species in the world. It is primarily used for construction purposes due to its strength advantages and availability in large dimensions from old grown trees. It is one of the finest timbers for heavy structural purposes and very popular for its workability properties. Here at Adanack we can supply Irish Douglas Fir when available in stock or alternatively European Douglas Fir.
