Hello folks i've been interested in bush craft for over twenty years my experience was gained mainly through conservation (tree surgery and coppicing) I have been a survivalist for a very long time I think I’ve always been a prepper without even knowing it :smile:

I've found that coppicing produces lumber that is inferior to a naturally growing tree. Is that just me?
Coppicing Seems to have worked here for thousands of years, i guess it's a compromise between what's useful for mankind and what's good for nature and also what you're using the lumber for.
Hazel poles for example are very useful when their about thumb thickness for hurdles and hedge laying it doesn't harm the Hazel to coppice it and as I'm sure you know managed or coppiced wood lands typically last for centuries longer than wild ones.
