24/1/10: Coppicing in Lesnes Abbey Woods

Re-coppicing Sweet Chestnut stools with Lesnes Abbey Conservation Volunteers this afternoon. Took my own trusty pruning saw, which I rightly surmised would be better than the stock bow saws. The poles will be split at a future event to make fence palings for use elsewhere in the wood .
