Coppicing

We are very pleased to say that we have started coppicing in Lag Wood, following the approval of the Forestry Commission who gave us the go-ahead last week. The permission extends to limited coppicing within conservation guidelines. We are coppicing a central section of Hazel in order to restore a former woodland ride which has become overgrown.

The work will be undertaken by a young woodsman called Jake who recently qualified under the Small Woods Apprenticeship Scheme. Jake will be working on several days in the next three weeks. Please keep dogs on leads when in the wood you see our signs on the stiles. This is for Jake’s health and safety as he will be using a chainsaw and other sharp implements. Hazard tape will be used where Jake is working.  Please do not enter these areas.
