Coppicing is an ancient method of enhancing woodland biodiversity, and coppice woodlands are to be found all over Britain and parts of Europe. The key to successful coppicing is to nurture the new coppice shoots. In return, a coppice will provide an endless supply of wood for a wide range of articles. The authors present detailed instruction on how to produce many kinds of woodland products from besom brooks, firewood, and charcoal to more challenging items such as hazel hurdles and coracles.
