The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
TWiG: February 2020
Thanks to everyone who has supported TWiG regarding our bumper crop of coppiced hazels.
And you keep on contacting us, which is terrific!
All the monies raised so far will be reinvested in conservation locally.
So, if you are now thinking about bean poles etc. TWiG is selling the coppiced hazel with a minimum donation of £10 for as much timber as you can individually carry.
This is a truly sustainable initiative — the coppiced hazel will let light into Jubilee Wood, 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.
In case you are not familiar with the story behind this bumper crop ... 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 in a multiplicity of ways:
- Bean poles
- Pea sticks
- Fence posts
- Walking sticks
- Hurdle making
- Shelter poles
- Arches, tunnels
