Classic Canes uses the centuries old ‘coppice with standards’ forestry system.  This produces the raw material for walking sticks from native British hardwoods such as ash, hazel and blackthorn.  Beneath an upper canopy of maturing timber trees, smaller trees are grown to a minimum of 10cm (4”) in diameter.  They are then cut off at a height of approximately 120cm (4’).  Each plant produces new shoots, which are just above the nibbling height of the woodlands’ population of roe deer.  Over three to four years, the shoots grow to the correct length and diameter to form the raw material for walking sticks.  The wood is cut each winter when the sap in the trees is down.  It is then dried for a minimum of one year before being steamed, straightened and finished in the Classic Canes workshop
