Horse logging - felling + extraction, management planning, coppicing, scrub + rhododendron clearance, charcoaling, tree planting, difficult access sites. NNR, SSSi, etc. Green oak + larch sales in stick or milled to order. Walling, fencing + general estate work. Grey squirrel control.
I work with willow, hazel, making structures, baskets: teaching school/community groups. I do commissions - in situ hurdles, living structures, large sculptures. Large biomass available, for yurts/ fencing.
Willow baskets and garden structures. Basket-making willow varieties home-grown in the South Lakes near Cartmel, cultivated and coppiced without fertilizers, pesticides or power tools. Supplemented by local coppiced materials. Shows and demos.
Traditional Earthburn - a method for making charcoal.
With thanks to Brian Crawley for organising this and writing about it, and of course to Jim Miller for all his hard work.
