I had a great week with a working holiday group last week at Rockford. We coppiced hazel in an overgrown area and used the wood for a number of purposes. We created charcoal on site, walking sticks and also left some hazel for deadwood habitat.
At the end of the week thanks to my groups hard work the site was unrecognisable, they cleared 100m of thick hazel which will now let a lot of light into the site and encourage new growth. Also they were able to take home some charcoal for their barbeques next year.
