Post Hedge Laying Stakes & Binders - 2016 season

We have received an enquiry from a North Hampshire (Tadley) hedgelayer to supply sufficient stakes & binders to lay 1km of hedge.
This would equate to approx :-

2000 stakes

4000m of binders (long & skinny)

The enquirer told me that he was currently working on his own and so I think that this is a bit adventurous for one man to tackle given that these are now only about 2.5 months left in which to hedge lay.

If you can supply or assist with this project then please advise.

Regards

I would like to help out. I need a new handle on my billhook which doesn't cost too much and I am familiarized with the process. I can do weekends and Mondays.

Hi Jeremy,

I will forward contact details to you.

The Oxfordshire Woodland Group can help you with the purchase of a new billhook especially if this means that you can secure employment to help lay a hedge thereby promoting active countryside management.

Alternatively if the blade of some vintage and worth preserving then several types of new handle for same can be purchased from Woodsmith.
