Coppicing, Trimming & Thinning

The practice of coppicing and coppicing-with-standards goes back hundreds of years and maintains trees at a juvenile stage of their growth. The stump, which has been cut close to ground level, allows the regrowth of new shoots - regularly coppiced trees will never die of old age. This is ideal for producing new sustainable timber without the expense of planting new trees.

Coppicing on a regular rotation also lets in more light through the woodland canopy. This extra light creates a much more diverse woodland floor, actively encouraging both natural flora and forna. Trees that are mostly coppiced are willow, oak, ash, hazel, sweet chestnut and field maple. All this helps to produce a saleable product and generate income from your woodland. Products such as binding rods, firewood, charcoal and roofing materials such as thatching spars.

Trimming of standards lifts the crown and allows more light into the woodland.

Thinning is the selective removal of stems to help further growth of the remaining crop. This is usually carried out when trees are around 18 years with the 1st, 2nd and final crop carried out on a 5 year rotation.
