Coppicing is a traditional form of woodland management. Not only does the practice of coppicing provide us with wood for many uses it is also extremely beneficial for wildlife, opening up shaded woodlands allowing in light to regenerate the woodland floor benefitting flowers, butterflies, bees and other insects. Well managed coppice stands also provide habitats for Dormice, Nightingales and many other species.
This course is aimed at beginners and anyone who has an interest in this traditional woodland management and will be especially useful for new small woodland owners who are looking to improve their woodlands for wildlife.
