Woodland types

Each type of coppice woodland could be managed in different ways. Tree species prefer different soils and grow at different rates. In terms of biodiversity, a variety of species in a woodland might be preferred.

The management of the woodland might vary depending on the goals of the woodland manager. Growing long straight poles for example might require the coppice stools to be planted closely together. There is not just one way of managing a coppice woodland and it is possible to combine goals. For example, coppicing for firewood can have a positive effect on the wildlife and plants in the wood.
