Event details

Events At Leigh Woods - Meet in Leigh Woods car park
Free event: register for on Saturday 19 February

Join our ranger in Leigh Woods to learn about this traditional woodland management technique. Learn about coppicing, explore our previously coppiced areas, then have a go yourself!

Trees are regularly cut to the ground and regrow with multiple stems. Coppicing allows trees to live longer, provides wildlife habitat, and supports ground flora by letting more light reach the forest floor. Coppicing is done on a cycle or rotation with some trees being cut each year. This ensures a range of habitat and continuity of open space.

All hand tools, protective equipment, and instructions will be given.

Tea, coffee, and cake is on us. Please bring a packed lunch.
