Bringing you the finest quality & choice in softwood products.

Softwood is renowned for its versatility and strength. Sourced from all over the globe, with a large breadth of applications and a remarkably aesthetic appeal, softwood can be used across a broad range of internal and external projects – from furniture and flooring, to decking, landscaping, external joinery and structural applications.

Arnold Laver brings you the broadest and most comprehensive range of softwood species and grades to cover all your timber requirements.

A core range of softwoods is held in stock at all branches, backed up by daily supplies from our National Distribution Centre.

As well as standard products, bespoke requirements are our speciality, with machining, grading and treatment facilities available group-wide.

Because of our long-standing alliances with the global brand leaders in softwood production, we can assure our customers of consistently high quality products, supported with sound environmental credentials, including full Chain of Custody status for 11 depots, and FSC, PEFC, SFI, CSA, and MTCC certification.
