A grove of small growth; a thicket of brushwood; a wood cut at certain times for fuel or other purposes. See Copse.
To cause to grow in the form of a coppice; to cut back (as young timber) so as to produce shoots from stools or roots.
A forest stand originating primarily from sprouts; the coppice method refers to the way these forests are regenerated.
ME ‘copys’, small woodland worked on a three, five or seven year cycle to produce light wood products such as wattles hurdles etc.
Trees or shrubs which are cut to ground level every few years and then regrow from the stumps into a clump of stems.
Crops of poles raised by cutting back broad-leaved trees to ground level to get many new shoots.
the tendency of certain tree and brush species (such as red alder and bigleaf maple) to produce a large number of shoots when a single or few stems are mechanically removed but the root system left intact.
An area of woodland, often hazel or sweet chestnut, which has been or is managed for wood production by cutting stems close to the base on a regular cycle, generally 5-10 years.
A method of cutting certain species of trees to encourage them to regrow from the remaining stump. A tree that coppices readily does not require frequent replanting and is, therefore, useful for producing fuel and poles. Shoot developed from a dormant bud on a main trunk. A small wood regularly cut over for regrowth.
(stool) To prune trees or shrubs close to ground level annually to promote strong growth.
Dense growth of trees or shrubs that are regularly cut back to their stumps.
The practice of periodically cutting down trees nearly to ground level and allowing them to regenerate.
Forst regeneration by sprouting (vegetative reproduction) from stumps or roots.
a traditional form of woodland management, cutting trees back to stump s repeatedly and harvesting the new growth some years later
The re-growth of branches or roots from cut down trees or damaged roots.
A plant derived by coppicing (the cutting of the main stem at the base to stimulate the production of new shoots).
Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management. Young tree stems are cut down to a foot or less from ground level. In doing so, they sprout new vigorous shoots.
young stems shooting from a stump or the juvenile growth sprouting from mature trunks or branches
From a French word meaning 'to cut', a coppice is a wood maintained by periodical cutting. It the middle ages this was an important means of growing wood for fencing and kindling.
An ancient method of harvesting wood, still used widely in the UK. Consists of cutting trees back to ground level every 8-12 years, this encourages new growth ideal for the manufacture of many wooden implements. Hurdles, gates, rakes and of course walkingsticks.
to cut the main stem (particularly of broadleaved species) at the base or to injure the roots to stimulate the production of new shoots for regeneration
A crop of coppice shoots. ( BCFT).
Cutting a broad leaved tree to a stump to encourage many fresh straight shoots which can be used for walking sticks, hurdles etc.
grove of shrubs originating from sprouts or root suckers.
1. Shoots arising from strands of bud-producing tissue that originates from leaf axils within the phloem and generally arising from cut or broken stumps. 2. Shoots developing from a dormant bud of a trunk
Trees which are cut near ground level (or sometimes higher in which case they are pollards), causing them to produce many small shoots. These shoots are harvested every few years at a relatively early age for products such as staves, fencing, fuel and charcoal. 'Coppice with standards' includes scattered trees that are left to grow as normal ('standards')
Regeneration through the means of vigorous stump sprouting from the root system.
A thicket or dense growth of small trees or bushes, especially one regularly trimmed back to stumps to provide a continual supply of small poles or firewood.
Young re-growth on a cut tree or bush.
