About Us: African Forest Timber Ltd was established in 2014 as a family own business, but local legend says we started even before that operating as freelancers chain saw operators. In 2019 the Executive Board decided to start a sustainable first lumber business specializing in the sale of fine-quality African hardwoods. Our interest in African rain forest wood comes from the founders upbringing in the West African rain forest village, where each school break holidays was a spectacular moment to tour the rain forest. The greater part of his life as a kid till university was assisting his father in freelancing chain saw operations in the rain forest. So trees were always a part of his life.
Initially, we tried to store and sell a limited supply of hardwoods from our family garage in the city of Limbe, but quickly found space to be a critical problem. When the founders had the opportunity to purchase a small warehouse building just outside of town, they jumped at the chance, even though they could not afford it. We sold our house and moved into a small room on the property so we could buy the building to store more hardwoods (increasing inventory) and have a woodworking area for bee hives production.
Most of our business was directed to the local community, although we did (and we still do) receive orders from as far away as North Region. Each day brought a new request for the company back then and it still does for African Forest Timber Ltd today. In 2018 when African Forest Timber bought if first mobile saw mill (Lucas Mill to expand the services and product line, while making custom milling and personalized customer service a cornerstone of the business. Now African Forest Timber Ltd operate multiple mobile saw mills from West to Centre Africa with large mobile mills such as, supper slabers, slabers, saws, and chain saws mills, African Forest Timber Ltd can produce just about anything from custom trim to full slab dimensional lumber from many African rain forest tree species and almost any size you choose.

Our Comitment to Clients
We work hard to serve our customers’ best interest and to mill pieces to specified measurements. All times, because this is custom millwork, it may take longer than expected to get your pieces just the way you order them. Without proper finishing and since wood is a natural element, it can continue to move due to humidity or the drying process. If there are ever any issues with your order, please feel free to contact us FIRST and let us make it right. Thank you.
