Chestnut Coppiced Chestnut

Generally all timber used is home grown (UK) pressure treated softwood (Tanalised E), but as an alternative we are able to offer chestnut. Also grown in the UK, this hardwood is harvested by coppicing (cutting down and allowing the stumps to regenerate ) so it is totally renewable, and because it has a natural resistance to rot, it is left untreated so is also very environmentally friendly. Traditionally chestnut is used cleft (split) but in a stock fence (netting plus 2 strands of barbed wire) this can look messy so we use the posts in the full round, 6' 3"-4" for intermediates and 8' 6"-8" strainers this creates a very substantial fence. If just barbed wire is being used then smaller or cleft post could be used.
