Coppicing is an ancient method of enhancing woodland biodivesity, 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 and the authors present detailed instruction on how to produce many kinds of woodland products from besom brooms, firewood and charcoal to more challenging items such as hazel hurdles and coracles.
Coppicing and Coppice Crafts by Edward Mills Rebecca Oaks
About the author
Edward Mills carried out his first coppicing in Essex in 1981. He purchased his own coppice woodland in the Lake District in 2003 and his wood is frequently used for promoting the benefits of good coppice management. Edward became a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Foresters in 2004. Rebecca Oaks set up her coppice business in 1994, specialising in hazel hurdle making and coppice products. The bread and butter money though, came from firewood in the winter and making twelve tonnes of charcoal through the summer. She is co-author with Edward Mills of Coppicing and Coppice Crafts and Greenwood Crafts, both published by Crowood.
