Hi,

Ive just started the construction of a willow fence to keep in a
donkey. Im using (fairly) vertical poles of alder and willow about a
metre high, and have woven a small section with fresh green willow
rods.

My question would be, in the green woodworking ethos, is it okay to
just use fresh green willow for weaving a fence or should it always be
seasoned and then re-hydrated to prevent shrinkage ? If I don't season
it is there anyway at all to use green willow in this way ?

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks.


Re: Green Willow Fence
Green would be preferred.  It will tend to dry in the bent shape.  Shrinkage  
will not be a problem.
