Timber Planing and Profiling

  Customer's own , untreated timber can be sized and profiled . For     example, flooring, framing, decking timber, tongue and groove or   weatherboards.

  We charge for this service on  a lineal metre basis.


  Set up fee  $50 + gst   [ 1 set up fee for each line  may be charged]

  $0.50 + gst per lineal metre

  We prefer your timber to arrive already dry. There may be a labour     charge of $25 + gst per hour for any additional work required to fillet   timber for drying prior to planing.

  Custom Treatment

 We can offer custom treatment of your own, dry timber. We use the   CCA treatment method and can treat to H3,  H4  and H5 retention.

  Treatment prices are per cubic metre

  H3  $110 + gst per m3

  H4  $130 + gst per m3

  H5  $140 + gst per m3

  Peelings and Shavings

  Our untreated peelings or shavings are fantastic for animal bedding   or   garden mulch.

  The post peelings are a larger grade and ideal for calf sheds. They   also  make a wonderful garden mulch that lasts a long time and does   not blow around.

  We have a smaller amount of wood shavings and sawdust available   too. These are finer and compost down faster than the peelings.


  Pick up in own vehicle from Ormondville yard  $12 + gst per cubic metre

  Bulk truck load of 35 cubic metres delivered locally in Central Hawke's   Bay and Southern Hawke's Bay

  $16 + gst per m3 [ $560 + gst  per load] within 40 km of yard.
