Introduction to Coppicing Course
Thanks to all our hardy volunteers who joined us at Millfields Wood, Easingwold, last weekend for a fantastic weekend ‘Introduction to Coppicing’ course, lead by professional coppice worker and member of Leeds Coppice Workers, Tom Coxhead. Volunteers gained an insight about the practicalities and techniques involved in coppice management as well as gaining from Tom’s wealth of knowledge about the processing and use of a large variety of coppice products, which was both useful and inspiring.
Volunteers from our Millfields group , as well as volunteers from other areas of North Yorkshire and even Lincolnshire braved the elements to spend the weekend together in beautiful, (if a bit nippy!) snowy woodland conditions.
Thanks to everyone who came along, as well as Assistant Site Manager, Alec Pue for supporting a really productive and interesting weekend.
