Hello from Donald

Great photo at the top of the page. I love coppice woods, for their diversity and for their productivity. I have been studying them for years and occasionally get asked to run a course on the theory and practice of coppicing. Coppicing is a great way to manage a woodland for wood fuel but you have to be very brave to cut down a big enough area to get the full coppice response. For a couple of years, it looks awfully like a clearfell. And how do you protect against roe deer? That is a big issue. Looking forward to discussing all things coppice on this forum.

Nothing wrong with a clear fell! Smells good, and the re-burst of growth is as rewarding as the use of the harvested material (even if the first cut yields little other than firewood.
