Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management to produce timber. In order to escalate timber production coppicing exploits a simple fact of nature – trees will flourish and form new growth from the stump when cut down.
Our Tree Surgeons may be required to coppice an entire woodland or a smaller area and will repeatedly cut down young tree stems near to ground level. Cutting back selected tree species almost to ground level, on a regular cycle normally between 10 to 30 years in length. In subsequent years, many new shoots will emerge from the tree stump, and, after a number of years the coppiced tree will be ready for harvest, and the cycle begins again.
