Although advertised as part of National Coppice Week, much of the coppicing had already been completed during our visit at the start of the month and the greater part of the day was spent working on the dead hedge to protect the coppiced stools from deer damage.
With only a small amount of hazel growing within the coppiced area, some additional trees kindly provided by Phil were planted.
A birch overshadowing the plot was felled.
With autumn well under way a plentiful supply of sweet chestnut were to be found .....
..... as well as an abundance of fungi.
