Split chestnut is one of our favourite fencing materials for several reasons. It is an incredibly strong and durable timber which does not require chemical tanalising to prevent it rotting, and it is sourced from well-managed, coppiced British woods.

From the early Middle Ages, most woods in lowland England were coppiced. This traditional method of managing woodland provides a self-renewing source of wood allowing an indefinite number of crops to be taken. Coppiced trees can live to a great age and some of the oldest trees in British woods may be more than 1,000 years old.

Coppicing creates conditions suitable for many plants, insects, birds and wildlife, and it is particularly important to those requiring very open woodland habitats.

The result for our clients using this well-managed resource are maintenance-free fences that last up to 25 years and more and which weather beautifully.
