Hampshire is synonymous with hazel coppice. In days gone by thousands of acres of hazel coppice was planted and managed in Hampshire. This extremely versatile tree had many uses from thatching spars to woven hurdles. Unfortunately, nowadays many of these products are no longer in as high demand as they once were and the coppices have become dark, overgrown places.
 
Here at Test Valley logs were dedicated to producing firewood as responsible and sustainable as possibly. By regenerating these old coppices it not only provides a superb source of truly renewable firewood but also brings light and life back into our local woodland….not many firewood producers can say that !!!
