Community coppicing days

Come and enjoy a day out in the woods to help us with coppicing and take home some wood for gardening stakes, firewood or whatever you like.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Volunteer alongside our rangers and learn a bit more about our woodland management work in Great Wood. Coppicing is an ancient woodland management technique that was once used to ensure regular supplies of timber and firewood. Today, we use it in many of the places we care for to create a range of habitats for plants and wildlife, dramatically increasing the diversity of species that thrive in these areas.
