Poles and timber products

Hazel coppice stools.

From the coppice at Pentiddy Woods we are able to supply a range of woodland products.

We have areas of Hazel on a 3-4 year rotation, Sweet Chestnut on 12-15 year rotation and Ash/Lime where the Ash is being replaced gradually with a mix of species due to Ash dieback.

We do not cut every product every year at this stage. Please call us to ensure we have what you require.

Below are a list of products we can supply and prices.

Calculating volumes of Hazel for weaving

Each weaver is approx 8′ (2.4m) x 1-1½” (25-32mm) and costs 90p
It takes anywhere between 15-20 rods per foot (30cm) of build-up.
This equates to approx. £2/sq ft or £21/m²

Therefore a 3x2m fence would be 6m² = 6 x £21 = £126, 140 rods
or a 9’x6′ would be 54 sq ft = 54 x £2 = £108 or 120 rods

Obviously if you are confident in cleaving the rods in half you can half these figures (or thereabouts- some always break!)
