About this book

From the early Middle Ages until the late nineteenth century most woods in lowland England were coppiced, creating conditions suitable for many plants, insects and birds and those requiring very open woodland habitats. The decline of coppicing over the past century has resulted in serious losses of habitat for certain open-woodland species. This booklet explains how traditional coppice systems worked, why they are important to woodland wildlife and how coppice can be managed to enhance its wildlife interest.
