I have a talented sister who researches and writes some fascinating narrative about Denver (where she lives) and her homeland Essex, England. She has eight books in the system which are selling well and is currently releasing a few others as electronic books. Fascinating stuff! Check out her websites at Elizabeth Victoria Wallace.
Walter Scott brought the technique (wattle) back to popularity in England when he described such a fence in *The Fortunes of Nigel, *but the practice of using indigenous trees such as the willow and alder for use as fencing material is a centuries' old custom. Although an ancient art, the following site gives us a detailed, practical account of how to make these wonderful (and natural) enclosures that would enhance any garden or orchard.
