About Traditional coppicing in Stackpole WoodsHelp us manage our coppice woodland with traditional tools to create a fantastic habitat for wildlife.
Come and help us continue to manage our coppice woodlands the old-fashioned way. You will learn to use traditional tools in this historic method of woodland management and help create a fantastic haven for woodland wildlife. Alongside tree felling and processing the wood, you will also have the chance to have a go at some traditional woodland crafts.
