GLOSSARY

Here’s our glossary, an explanation of woodland words, forestry speak & landscape language. It’s operational terms & technical jargon that you may or may not already know or understand.

Coppicing

Forestry practice that involves the harvest of young growth of Ash, Hazel or Chestnut by cutting back stumps to ground level that quickly re-grow. The material harvested has many uses including for thatching, fence making, lath & batten making, and makes very sustainable fuel supply. We use coppice for our lime plaster laths and for fencing.
