Coppice

Rods of hazel and willow are cut from stands of managed coppice. Hazel is cut every winter from a coup that is one eighth of the woodland, whereas willow has a shorter rotation of one or two years.

Hazel and large biomass willow are used to make woven fencing.

Various species of willow are cut for making living willow structures, including coloured willow.

For basket making I use varieties of willow that produce thin shorter rods including several types of Purpurea. Please enquire about the availability of surplus material for sale for your own projects.

We are presently developing coppice products for sale including Westmorland Panels, please get in touch if you are interested in ordering or would like to see examples.
