Derelict coppice – who needs it?
Just a load of old hazel overgrown, or is it?
This is a coppice wood that has been left without management for around 50 years. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (just like Strid Wood). Lots of trees and flora, and birds, and deer (OMG).
It needs a bit of loving care and attention, … and a chain saw.
These overgrown hazel stools will be a source of all manner of coppice products …
Wait until you see what comes out of this woodland – you’ll need to wait a bit though!
