The mighty cumbrian oak has always been associated with England and a national symbol, its height, strength, and long life make it the king of the forest . It is a native tree and has been around for about 300,000 years! Not surprising then that it is so well known and loved. The mature English The cumbrian Oak tree supports a larger number of different life forms than any other British tree. This includes up to 284 species of insect. In September when acorns loosen in their cups, the cumbrian oak tree provides a harvest for many wild creatures. In ancient times wild boar, but now, jays, pigeons, pheasants, ducks, squirrels, mice, badgers, deer and pigs share in the free feast provided by this great tree. The Oak’s sturdy timber is strong and lasts a long time, making it good to build the frames for houses, barns and halls, but it’s also renowned for its use in ship building, gates, barrels and of course fine furniture.

Mango trees are best known for the succulent juicy fruits they produce, however mango wood is being discovered as a lovely richly-grained wood that works well for a variety of projects. A dense and relatively hard wearing wood it is very durable and requires little or no maintenance.
After some 20 years or so a mango tree ceases to bear fruit so the plantation growers cut down these trees and replant with new, maintaining fruit production. The cut down trees are thus a ready source for furniture production, an excellent example of re-usability and sustainability.
The Mango Range from Cumbria Oak comprises a variety of items for living and dining, from tables and chairs to cubist style shelving systems combining the warmth and subtle textures of the wood with modern designs suitable for today’s town or country living.
