This course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of coppice management.  It includes an introduction as to how and why coppice became an integral part of the British woodland composition, the biology of coppice and how coppice systems are managed.  We will look at practical management techniques and the making of coppice produce. Starting at the YDNP offices in Bainbridge, the course will continue at Freeholders Wood, Aysgarth, possibly the best example of coppiced woodlands in the Dales.  Geoff Norton of Yorkshire Hurdles will discuss the practical management of coppice coupes, the selection of rods and how to use these to make a range of coppice products.
