Coppicing in Bridgend: 19th February 2011

Coppicing in Bridgend, originally uploaded by Bridgend Countryside Volunteers1.

Coppicing at Frog Pond Wood Local Nature Reserve

This is a traditional form of woodland management whereby narrow diameter trees are cut to the ground with loppers and bow saws, and supported by qualified chainsaw operators. The cut material is made into habitat piles.

The event is a whole day event led by the Countryside Management Officer and Coed Cymru Officer, with tools and guidance provided. Volunteers are encouraged to work in pairs to help one another. This is a fairly physical activity, but volunteers are advised not to over exert themselves.
