Proposed National Coppice Week 2019-we need your input!

So, what is National Coppice Week?
It’s a week of events throughout the UK focusing on coppicing, coppice products and the many benefits of the management of British woodlands by coppicing.

Actually we are proposing 9 days – including two weekends, 12th-20th October, launching at the NCFed weekend Gathering and AGM in Herefordshire on 12th October.
What does it aim to achieve?
To raise the profile of:

  1. Coppicing – what it is and why it’s done
  2. Products of the UK’s coppiced woodland
  3. The benefits of buying local and the problems often associated with imported products, especially charcoal
  4. Habitat and biodiversity benefits associated with coppice management
  5. Coppicing’s heritage
