On Friday 20th November 2020, iWood's telephone system is being upgraded and we expect some downtime on the phones at some point during the day. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble getting through on the phones, but we hope for a speedy switchover.
Please note that iWood is a wholesale timber merchant, and because much of our timber is imported to order, we have a minimum order amount of £750 ex VAT (£900 inc VAT).

Planed All Round Clear and Better Douglas Fir
iWood Planed all Round Douglas Fir is ideal for heavy construction, piling, house building, roof trusses, interior and exterior joinery, due to it's durability. Our Clear and Better grade Douglas Fir is a light reddish-brown in colour and contains a minimal number of knots.
Although the timber is difficult to work with, its overall quality more than makes up for it. Compared with European redwood, imported and home grown Douglas Fir are roughly 40% stronger, 60% stiffer and 30% stronger in bending. Douglas Fir is also more resistant to suddenly applied loads which is what makes so useful in constructional environments.
Our planed all round Douglas Fir is smooth to the touch across the face and sides and is sawn on the two ends. We plane the timber down to your measurements and we can provide section sizes up to 94mm x 194mm (EX 100mm x 200mm) and up to 4m in length.
Due to how timber prices are calculated please enter the exact sizes you need. If you are buying the planks to cut down yourself order the length you would cut down to (the pieces are usually supplied overlength anyway) this is because ordering multiple shorter pieces will most likely be cheaper than one long piece.
At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying the highest quality timber, ensuring you have the highest percentage of usable Douglas Fir planed timber as possible from your order.
The Douglas Fir Tree
Douglas Fir’s are generally very tall trees ranging from 45m to 60m high and 1-2m around the trunk, however, in some cases they have been known to be much larger. The trees are distributed across Northern America and Canada and have been extensively planted throughout Europe.
The tree has unusual pointed Cones growing from it which make it stand out. These cones go from yellow to pink to brown as they age. The flowers on the tree tend to be either yellow or red (both can be found on the same tree).

Clear & Better Douglas Fir Planed All Round from iWood Timber
Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 14 - 17 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please click here to open our delivery cost page in a new window.
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
The ordering process
After placing your order securely online you receive an email confirming the items you have ordered. When your order has arrived at iWood HQ and is ready for dispatch, we will give you a call to arrange delivery.
