An Introduction to Coppicing Wild Workshop (LANCS)
Discover the principles behind managing a woodland coppice and have a go at coppicing for yourself at Mere Sands Wood Nature Reserve, Rufford.
Coppicing is an ancient technique using low impact, hands-on ways of processing timber, whilst at the same time helping increase biodiversity by creating different habitats as the tree regrows. Discover the principles behind managing a woodland coppice or a short rotation willow crop. Learn when, how and which species to coppice, the tools to use and have a go at coppicing in our woodlands for yourself.
All tools and materials will be provided. This workshop will take place entirely outdoors, and will last for approximately 4 hours, so please come dressed for the weather. Lunch is not provided so please bring your own. Alternatively, there is a café on site where you may purchase food and drink.
