About Shelmore Timber

We are based near Norbury Junction on the border of Staffordshire and Shropshire.


We stock a wide range of native hardwoods and softwoods as well as carefully selected American hardwoods and Tropical timbers.


UK Species Timber

Our UK species timber is sourced from forests and woodlands within the UK as well as our own managed mature woodlands on the 1,500-acre Norbury Park and Ranton Estates, where we have over half a million trees (oak, beech, sycamore, larch, sweet chestnut, etc.


The focus of the estate has been on sustainability and forest resilience, with over 100 different species having been planted and the woodlands producing around 1500 tons of new wood per year.


Due to the extensive and detailed planting and harvesting records maintained by the Norbury Park Estates over the past centuries, we can provide unparalleled provenance for the timber we supply and be self-sufficient in the supply of our stock.


We are very passionate about our trees our timber and the end-use of everything we sell. We want you to be confident in the knowledge that the wood we supply, and you purchase, will be of the highest standard and that it will serve its purpose in the most sustainable way possible.
