Hand Powered: Traditional Land Based Skills

Coppicing and greenwood products

The need to manage our woodlands sustainably has never been more important. With their role to help mitigate the impacts of climate change and as we look to make our landscapes more resilient it is critical that we interact with our woodlands in a positive way The excitement and pleasure that comes with the near-endless possibilities that can be produced from coppice materials is fascinating and rewarding. We help both private landowners and organisation to start actively managing their woodlands to produce locally sourced products and improve them for biodiversity. We have many years' experience managing coppice woodlands and are keen to provide advice as well as practical assistance on bringing woodlands of any size back into rotation.
