We are using Greenwood Working techniques to make various products in Sweet
Chestnut. This is part of a sustained forestry management programme in Cornwall. Chestnut
is as durable as oak, it needs no treatment because of the high levels of tannin
in the heart wood. The hand crafted look of worked wood is a traditional and subtle look,
each panel has sufficient variation to add to the overall sculptural interest.
We make diagonal trellis
fencing panels in standard sizes to fix to walls for climbing plants and to free stand as
fencing, with riven posts. We also make picket fences using half rounds of chestnut, which
make effective cottage type boundaries. Sizes are from 0.75m - 1.8m high, all at 1.8m
We also make Rose arbours and pergolas. Small gates, to match fencing. Riven
posts in varying sizes to act as tree stakes, or for stock fencing. Along foot paths a
riven wood stile is attractive durable and safe.
Chestnut is a non
conductor for electric fences. The wood weathers to an attractive silver shade. We can use
non toxic wood stain, in various shades, to suit taste.
We am always delighted
to work and travel to any special project that a client may conceive. We have accomplished
several Pergolas using whole timber, bridges for walkways over streams, bird hides,
porches and summer houses.
our products will help sustain a woodland as a viable landscape for plants
and wildlife, whilst keeping people living and working in the countryside
maintaining skills essential for the future.
