Coppicing

At Arboricultural Excellence we know and love the unique woodland biodiversity that is found all over Sussex. Without a doubt, the traditional woodland management technique of coppicing is perfect for this. The technique involves felling trees at the base (or stool). Subsequently they are then allowed to regrow, in order to provide a sustainable supply of timber. This practice has a number of benefits over replanting as the felled trees already have developed root systems, making regrowth quicker.

What’s more, a well-managed coppice woodland provides an excellent habitat for many species of bird, butterfly and other insects. This is due to the increased light coverage and shelter provided by the varied vegetation.
