www.thegreenlifefarm.com I am rich in alders. In my ignorance, I use to curse them but no more. Not only are they a sustainable, quick growing, firewood but alders are strong and flexible enough to build a woven, wattle, fence. I also find natural wood fences very pleasing aesthetically as compared to wire fencing. Wattle fences have been used, at least since medieval times, as a popular, easy-to-construct, low-cost alternative to stone, timber or metal wire. Wattle material consists of readily available, fast growing plants like willow and alder that produce long straight branches. Historically, these fences enclosed animals, orchards, and gardens.
