Part of our series of Ash Workshops

Ash Coppicing

Join the Medway Valley Countryside Partnership and spend a day coppicing an ash tree at a local wildlife site.

Coppicing is a traditional woodland management method that has been used across the country for centuries. Learn about this traditional technique and about the way that coppicing a tree can stimulate new growth and allow certain species to live for a very long time. We will also learn about the way that coppicing a wood can promote biodiversity and encourage resilient woodlands.

Lead by experienced staff at the Medway Valley Countryside Partnership

The workshop is suitable for adults and families  Children are welcome but the event will involve extensive use of bladed tools and so close supervision is necessary. We will have some activities suitable for children aged 7 and up.
