This Wattle Pine Wood Fencing Homesteading DIY Project is a great way to use the natural resources that you can find on your land to create boundaries possibly for the garden enclosures, walkways or maybe animal pens. Weaving green (newly cut) wood branches into a standup design that later dries into a firm fence is frugal and genius.
There are many tutorials for building wattle fencing but I had never seen it done with pine before. In this article, small pine trees were used to build a wattle fence for ducks. I love the way it looks and if you had enough small pine trees on your property or could get them you can learn how to build a wattle fence with them.

Wattle is a lightweight construction material made by weaving thin branches (either whole, or more usually split) or slats between upright stakes to form a woven lattice. It has commonly been used to make fences and hurdles for enclosing ground or handling livestock. The wattle may be made as loose panels, slotted between timber framing to make infill panels, or it may be made in place to form the whole of a fence or wall. The technique goes back to Neolithic times.
