I will be at the Norfolk show in the woodland crafts area. People say it’s the nicest part of the show in amongst the trees.
Here are two pictures of Bradfield woods in Suffolk. This wood has been continuously worked as a coppice since before 1252, so I am lucky to have such an amazing wood to supply me with the best coppiced Ash. Bradfield woods is also a site of special scientific interest.
The first picture shows the harvesting of coppiced Ash poles 6 to 8 inches in diameter, and the construction of a deer proof fence from brushwood.
The second picture shows a coppice ‘stool’ 7 years after the trees were cut down.
