Alternative Timber is an independent locally owned timber merchant, specialising in the sale and milling of various naturally durable timbers as an alternative to Radiata pine. We have been operating since 1992.
We operate a portable sawmill around the South Waikato area, mainly within one hour's drive from our base in Putaruru and further away by negotiation.
If you are after some timber (green or dry), or have logs you need milled or would like to sell, give Heinz a ring, or see our latest TradeMe listings (only a selection is listed at any one time, so contact Heinz for more information).
We are a member of the NZFFA (New Zealand Farm and Forestry Association) and sell timber through their 'Timber market place'. Therefore all our timber sold (unless stated otherwise) will be sold to NZFFA specifications and grades. The NZFFA website is a very informative site with a wealth of information about various timber species.
