Have a go at Coppicing, a woodland management method involving cutting trees and regrowing shoots
woodland management tree cutting coppicing to do
The National Trust at Mount Stewart are inviting members of the public to have a go at Coppicing.
Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management which exploits the capacity of many species of trees to put out new shoots from their stump or roots if cut down. In a coppiced wood, which is called a copse, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level, known as a stool. New growth emerges and after a number of years, the coppiced tree is harvested and the cycle begins anew
This activity will take place at Killynether Wood, Newtownards.
