You will learn about: restoring hazel coppice to health; growing quality re-growth; the coppice ecosystem; use of the coppice harvest & coppice products; restocking through planting and layering; the coppice cycle; effects and control of deer browsing. We will be working in Park Wood, near Malvern (as seen on TV’s BBC 4‘s ‘Tales from the Wildwood’) which is in its 2nd cycle of restoration and features some very promising coppice re-growth.
