Coppicing success

Earlier in the year we reported on the hazel coppicing.  We protected some against the predations of rabbits with chicken wire and left others unprotected.  Perhaps because the coppice stools are close to the house all have done equally well.  One has grown vigorously and is over 1 metre tall, despite no protection. In the coming winter we shall do some more coppicing – should we try the same experiment?
