It all became very industria...

Re: Subscribing

Good idea Al. We all find the Forum very clunky and difficult to use too. I can put you in touch with Alan Carter, our chair, who has wrestled with it the most, if you like. Any help welcome.

Re: Atlantic hazel woods

Hazel is naturally multi-stemmed and so most of the Atlantic hazel you see has not been coppiced. Several very special rare fungi are adapted to long standing single and multiple stemmed trees. If you coppice them, you can lose the fungi.
