WILD SERVICE

Education and workshops, Green wood craft, Hedge laying, Woodlands

 is a small business where nothing is wasted. It aims to manage woodlands in sustainable ways in order to: 

  • develop an economically sustainable business (using coppiced materials)
  • regenerate and improve biodiversity of those woodlands
  • encourage the social use of woodland

The main approach used is mixed broadleaf coppicing (specifically ‘coppicing with standards’, which preserves some larger trees within the coppice). As a consequence of using this method areas of the woodland are left at different stages of regrowth, providing habitats for a range of animals and plants.

Coppicing utilises and manages the natural regrowth of some tree species, cutting back in cycles of regrowth (3-40 years) small areas of woodlands, to provide material for production of greenwood crafts, charcoal and some wood fuel.

We provide the following services:

  • SustainableWoodlandManagement
  • Coppicing
  • Hedgelaying
  • Woodlandbased social and educational activities

 We produce the following:

   Greenwoodcrafts:

     Charcoal:
