Bought a Tipi Canvas but cant find the poles? WoodPoint are here to help!
From Giant Kata Tipi poles at 8m long x 150mm diameter poles weighing 40kg, to Garden Tipi poles at 3m long x 50mm diameter weighing 3kg, we can cut any size for your Tipi.
Or would you like a feature for your garden party or wedding? There is nothing like a cluster of natural peeled tipi poles to act like a unique garden feature or "Naked Tipi" as they are sometimes known. The beautiful colour and grain of the smooth wood provides height and texture. Take a look at our Inspire Me page for lots more photos and ideas of how to style your Tipi and other rustic pole projects.
They are also a fantastic value place for children to dream & play! A small bundle of poles can quickly make a magical play den and is a great experience for older kids to build the Tipi with you. Just throw over your own old sheets or curtains and you have a safe house where the children can imagine sheltered from the sun & wind. Add a polythene layer and they can still escape the indoors on those drizzly British summer days!
We have experienced craftspeople in the woods every day. The trees are carefully selected for performance and character. And with our low impact manual felling and light weight forest machinery we are always leaving the forest tidy and better for wildlife.
From peeled sanded & oiled poles with a stunning finish to budget rustic poles with the bark on; any length and any diameter; it’s you who can choose. Standard sets for best buy deals or bespoke sizes for your designs. We can also deliver these unwieldy lengths for you.
We have partnerships with Woodland Management organisations throughout the South East of England, and carefully select each tree for your Garden Tipi by traditional hand felling techniques, these are then processed in our workshop for a smooth effect or a more rustic finish.

1.) What comes in the Garden Tipi Poles set?
At the moment just the wooden poles. There are many Tipi canvas suppliers on the internet to choose from. Just decide the diameter you want and we will be happy to quote for a set of poles to suit.
2.) Do you put the Garden Tipi up?
It is easy to put the poles up yourself and we can give you guidance how to do this.
3.) Can I have a smooth finish or one with the bark on? Does this change the price?
Yes you choose which finish you would like. There is a discount for poles with the bark still on.
4.) Do you deliver across the UK?
We are happy to quote for delivery anywhere in the UK.
5.) Do you deliver abroad?
We are happy to quote for delivery abroad.
6.) What type of wood are the Tipi Poles made of?
Our poles are harvested from conifer plantations in S E England. The timber is usually Pine, Fir or Spruce and is thinned form sustainably managed woodlands. Because of the low rainfall in the South East our wooden poles are slower grown than in other regions and this makes them stronger.
7.) Can I have different sized poles to the ones stated?
Yes any size up to 10m long and any pole diameter from 25mm to 150mm. We can quote for non standard size poles.
8.) What does it mean by diameter?
The distance from one side of the pole to the other on a line through the centre point. The circumference (distance all the way round the outside) is 3.14 x the diameter
9.) How long are the poles?
The above sets are the most popular sizes, but we can quote for non standard sizes.
10.) How do you put the Garden Tipi up? How many people do you need?
Small tipis are a one person job. For poles over 5m it is best to have 2 people
11.) What other bits of equipment does it need? Where do I get these?
Rope and string and sometimes ground anchor stakes. We can advise on these at the time of ordering.
12.) Can I return?
We have never had someone want to return one of these beautiful structures & unfortunately due to the nature of the product we do not offer this. If in doubt ask for a hire quotation for a week or two.
13.) Are these sustainably sourced?
Yes, we have partnerships with Forestry Commissions and woodland managers across the South, and use hand felling techniques to source our materials and help to regenerate woodlands. We are very passionate about this.
14.) Are these weather proof? How long will my Tipi Poles last? How do I look after them?
The poles can last at least 10 years if looked after when not in use. There is no need to weather proof during the spring and summer season. See our Choosing Rustic Poles page for more detailed aftercare information.
15.) Are Teepee Poles the same as Tipi Poles?
We tend to use the Tipi spelling, but you can also use the following spellings "Teepee Poles" and "Tepee Poles" - all are in the dictionary referencing the same conical tent like structure created by Native Americans.
16.) How do I order a Tipi Set?
Call or email Oliver Barnsley, MD of Woodpoint. If you are not sure what you are looking for, do get in touch as well! We would be happy to discuss.
