We only use the finest English willow for the production of our cricket bats.
The cultivated timber is grown throughout Kent and Essex. Each tree is planted by hand and is tended to by the grower to ensure that the tree will be suitable for bat making. In the past 10 years we planted over 300 willow trees at our workshop in Kent.
This replenishment programme ensures the countryside and species are protected. The mature trees are then cut into rounds, then split into clefts. Each cleft used as a Hell4Leather bat is hand selected by our master bat maker.
