Coppicing

19th October, 2016

Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management where trees are cut low to just above the ground level. This technique opens up the tree canopy in the woodland area coppiced, which allows light to reach wildflowers the following spring. The ConSoc team manage part of the woodland by Sheepwalks pond on Brackenhurst Estate, which is populated by Willow spp, by using this traditional method.

Again, a good turn out and a lot of progress was made during the day – with the help of a flask of tea and biscuits of course, so thank you to everyone who came along and took part!
