Coppicing And Ride Clearing At Blackmoor Copse – 2012

We have just finished our last task of the season at Blackmoor Copse: coppicing a coupe within a deer proof enclosure and cutting back hazel and ash from the side of a ride.  This opens out the area for ground flora and butterflies.  We left a “pinch point” so that dormouse can cross the ride by way of overhanging branches as they are reluctant to cross on the ground.
