Working in the wood today with Mr Moss coppicing hazel on a crisp January morning.
It is a magical process when you cut a tree down to its stool it does not die but regrows again. Coppicing creates pockets of light in the wood allowing for regeneration of the woodland floor and helps improve the biodiversity making this a sustainable way to manage woodlands.
All the wood that I coppice has a use from making my stick chairs to firewood.
To making dead hedges for wildlife from the tops of the trees that I have coppiced.
Nothing goes to waste and is recycled back to nature.
