Welcome to Geelhoutvlei Timbers, Private Sawmill, Garden Route

Geelhoutvlei Timbers is a private sawmill in the Knysna district in the picturesque Garden Route of South Africa. Started in the late eighties, it processes high quality Southern Cape Pine logs mostly of the Radiata species.

This low capital, labour intensive community based timber processor produces kiln dried, treated and moulded pine products including pallet and bin stock, fencing, flooring, cladding, decking etc as well as industrial sawn board.

Geelhoutvlei Timbers also grow, process and treat poles to SABS specification.

On Monday 28th October 2018 we were engulfed by a firestorm. Within minutes we lost our forest, our sawmill, our homes and our life’s work.
Since then, at disproportionate expense and with the superhuman effort of our people, we have struggled to bring life back to Geelhoutvlei.
