Coppicing Plan

Hugh down at Bosavern Farm has organised for some volunteers to help us with coppicing the willow on 1st February 2011, but before we can start cutting we need a plan of action. It is most important this year that:

  1. The willow is maintained as a windbreak for the crops to be grown in the field
  2. More willow can be re-planted on the North / East boundary of the field to provide further shelter.
  3. Any remaining willow can be used to produce hurdles, baskets etc and the skills needed can be passed on to the local community.

The Plan.
