hazel coppicing

Some nine years ago, TWiG, with help from children at the Park Primary School, planted 120 hazel saplings in what has become part of Jubilee Wood.

Last month, as part of our management plan for the Wood, we coppiced 60 of these small trees and are in a position to sell the timber for domestic use.

Coppiced hazel can be used for:
 Bean poles
 Pea sticks
 Fence posts
 Walking sticks
 Hurdle making
 Shelter poles
 Arches, tunnels, etc.

This is a truly sustainable initiative — the coppiced hazel will let light into the woodland, increase woodland plant biodiversity, and will continue to grow for coppicing again in eight or nine years time. In addition, it is using a locally produced source of timber, replacing commercially produced products such as bamboo canes.

TWiG are selling the hazel on a first come, first served basis and, with a minimum donation of £10 for as much timber as you can individually carry. Money received will provide funds to be reinvested into the work of TWiG.
