Slade House Farm, Sidmouth, EX10 0NU.

Into the woods we go! Coppicing trees is the lost art of managing woodlands. In a coppiced wood, young tree stems are repeatedly cut down to near ground level. This produces a sustainable crop of wooden poles and ensures the continued regeneration of the trees. We will be coppicing Willow trees and harvesting its wood which will be used for a number of projects across Slade House Farm.

Tools will be provided, however please bring your own gloves.
