About WoodNet

Linking Timber Growers with Wood Users in South East England

Planked sweet  chestnut in stick

Woodnet was established in 1996 as a partnership of woodland owners and timber processing companies wishing to make better use of locally-sourced materials.  A number of initiatives came out of this collaboration, including:

  • WoodLots - Business to Business trading exchange.
  • Weald WoodFair -  Business to Public Marketing.
  • Woodland Enterprise Centre -  an Innovation Centre for the timber sector demonstrating both wood in construction and renewable energy from local timber.

Further information and access to these activities can be found elsewhere on this site.


Company Structure and Status

Tree Cutting in Progress

In 2000, WoodNet became formally constituted as a Company Limited by Guarantee (not-for-profit), with Members, rather than shareholders.

The current members of the company are representatives from forestry, education and wood processing industries in Southern England.

The company is supported by trading activity, through sales information, consultancy and advertising, and by grants and contributions from other charitable foundations.





Woodnet is a Registered Charity

WoodNet members also established WoodNet as an educational charity, which was regsitered with the Charity Commission in 2000 (Reg. No. 1081302)

Woodnet undertakes education projects, skills training, and timber-related R&D projects, involving young people and the general public.

Woodnet has the support of several Trustees with experience in the field of education and rural land management who contribute their expertise in a voluntary capacity.
