Coppice in the snow
Some coppicing has now been completed with protection necessary to keep the rabbits and deer away from the new shoots when they appear. The photo shows a typical stool, now in the snow, complete with wire mesh. We now have a supply of bean poles and pea sticks, some of which have been given away – still more available and have been offered via the local horticultural society. The coppice has been cut at an angle, it’s normally cut level in public places.
