Coppicing courses and woodland experience days at

RAVENSHILL NATURE RESERVE, WORCESTERSHIRE


Phil says:

'My February course is now fully booked.

I have a few left on my September course.

12th -13th September 2009

24th -25th October 2009


The coppicing courses I run are an introduction to coppicing for people who have no experience of coppicing or for volunteers and others who have a little experience but would like to gain more knowledge.

The training course will include tree identification, the benefits of coppicing, a walk through the wood to look at the differences between native deciduous woodland and conifer plantations. Coppice restoration, working methods, material selection and processing. Material storage and building workbreaks.

All tools will be provided. The training will be conducted outdoors so please bring suitable warm and waterproof clothing.

My courses take place at Ravenshill woodland reserve, Alfrick, Worcestershire.

The course is over two days, usually over a weekend.

It costs £95 for the two days. A £20 deposit is required.

I have a maximum of 6 people on each course.


I will also be running woodland experience days in the summer.

Each day is for a maximum of 6 people.

Dates and content are flexible.

They will include a walk through the woods looking at the benefits of coppicing and cooking on a fire in my woodland workshop. It can include cleaving and shaving timber, building work breaks and screens. If there is anything in particular you would like to undertake please contact me to discuss your requirements

The woodland experience days I run are for people who have no experience of woodland work, but enjoy being in the woodland and want to gain more knowledge whilst having an enjoyable time.

All tools will be provided.

It costs £55 for the day. A £20 deposit is required.
