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