Where's Mike?

I think he's working on some writing on gastropods for a US magazine.  He did post the other night.

I find that pulling sharply down on the green shoots removes the growing point and helps prevent regrowth.

Hazelnut trees - What are your experiences?

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 20:33

Hazel produces nuts on wood grownin the previous year, so don't coppice every year or you'll never have nuts and only have pea sticks and never bean poles.

 I used to coppice our hazel every 3 to 4 years, depending on the size the regrowth had attained and what I wanted to use it for.  Neighbours used to coppice theirs every 7 years; that produced very sturdy poles.  

Friends who were thatchers coppiced theirs every 3 - 4 years to produce the spars they needed http://coppice-products.co.uk/product-type/thatching/
