What is a tree coppice?

Tree CoppicingA coppice is achieved by placing cuts close to the ground (usually within 3 feet). This method was initially intended for wood cultivation (like the Pollard). The regrowth is usually rapid growing and formed straight, with little defect. This regrowth was then used for a variety of purposes including shipbuilding, furniture-making, stakes and telegraph poles.

Coppicing can help to preserve a tree for several hundred years, if not forever! You will often see areas of coppiced woodland, which have been left to grow back to mature trees.

The process of coppicing also allows a tree/shrub to be maintained at a manageable height, whilst still having the benefits and show of the tree/shrub. However, there are only certain species that are usually coppiced, including Hazel, Willow, Lime and Beech. There are many other species that tolerate such pruning but flowering trees/shrubs can sometimes skip a flower season as a result.

Many people use the coppice technique in their gardens with the intention of producing their own canes and stakes – this is easily achieved.
