I'm wanting to coppice one of the hazel stools here to use for some wattle and daub walls.  I believe that winter is the time for coppice, but I won't be able to build the walls until later in the year.

will the hazel wood still be flexible enough a few months down the line if I cut it down now?  should I split it now?  should I leave it whole?  would soaking it in water make it flexible again when it comes time to build?  tell me what you know.
 
Are we home yet? Wait, did we forget the tiny ad?
