Are you an experienced coppice worker looking to bring a woodland back into rotation? Longleat Forestry, based on the Wiltshire/Somerset border, are exploring the options of bringing some of our old coppice woodlands back into rotation. Most of our broadleaf sub-compartments have a significant hazel understory that was previously or sporadically coppiced, but have since fallen into a state of non-management.

We hope to rectify this by offering an individual or team of coppice workers a sub-compartment to manage by bringing it back into rotation. We are willing to listen to any suggestions or ideas of how best to manage this process from experienced and capable individuals passionate about keeping this traditional craft alive.

If you’d like to discuss this in more detail or would like to arrange a site visit please drop me an email or give me a call. I’m willing to explore all reasonable ideas of how to make this work for all parties. Longleat Estate, Wiltshire
