What makes this fencing so good?
A natural and sustainable resource, the sweet chestnut we use is harvested within 15 miles of Haslemere from the woodlands of Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. All our chestnut is “winter-cut” when the trees are dormant . Skilled craftsmen working in the local coppice cleave the sweet chestnut,by hand, into stout and chunky pales. Each pale is pointed at the top to shed water and resist rot. Once well seasoned , they are bound with best quality galvanised wire, in our yard in Haslemere.

This fencing can be customised to your needs and can be made in rolls of any length. In all cases, we adhere, as closely as possible, to the British Standard BS1722-4:1986 which is often a requirement for a Local Authority or other public body but is also reassuring for individuals to know too.
Wonderfully versatile, sweet chestnut fencing naturally complements your land making light of corners, contours and any tricky areas. Totally organic, you can rest assured that no pesticides have been applied to the sweet chestnut; making this safe in allotments and vegetable gardens.
