What is Green Oak Timber?

What is Green Oak Timber?

Green oak timber is unseasoned ‘green’ oak, freshly cut within 3 to 18 months after the tree is felled, retaining high moisture content. Green oak frames are the primary structural element of a building, instead of steel or any other masonry, held together using pegged mortice, tenon, dovetail and other joints. The oak members can be infilled with other timber or brickwork to make it look as pleasing as possible. The timber can be beams, posts, braces or roof trusses.
