Coppicing at Wenlock Edge
This week the TTF (Tuesday Task Force) were out coppicing at Wenlock Edge. Coppicing is a traditional practice of tree management and involves cutting trees at their base and the new growth consists of small thin poles which can be used for hedge laying and fencing. The coppice plot we were working on was previously coppiced between 10-15 years ago.
