Fallen and Felled – Re-using London’s Felled Timber Stock

Listen to Sharon talking to Fallen & Felled founders Bruce Saunders and Patrick Welsh as they set about making beautiful items from London's fallen timber – to quote from their website:-

'We save city trees from the fire – milling them into boards and slowly seasoning them for over 12 months – to transform them into furniture-grade hardwood timber. We also source some popular English species – including oak and ash which are less common in the capital – from woodlands outside London. 

Our timber is used by furniture makers, architects, designers and enthusiasts – all of them as excited as we are to make things with beautiful natural materials which reconnect people to where they live.'
