Product Description

About the Author

Rebecca Oaks set up her own coppice business in 1994. Mentored by Bill Hogarth, the last active coppice merchant in the north-west of England, she built a business specializing in hazel coppice and coppice crafts. In 2000 she formed the Bill Hogarth MBE Memorial Apprenticeship Trust [BHMAT] and has been running three-year apprenticeships in coppicing ever since. Edward Mills carried out his first coppicing in Essex in 1981. He purchased his own coppice woodland in the Lake District in 2003 and his wood is frequently used for promoting the benefits of good coppice management. Edward became a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Foresters in 2004.

A good teacher imparts knowledge without thinking of themselves. They are open and transparent and want to give over what they know to their audience. This book does just that. I first read about Rebecca Oaks in Ben Law's "The Woodland Year". Her passion for coppicing and woodland crafts are tangible and infectious. The Co-writer, Edward Mills, is just as enginging. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in copice work; be they gardener or archeologist, bushcraft instructor or gamekeeper. It is full of practical advice that facilitates the learning without being condecending. A great read.

I've found this to be an incredibly enlightening book, with a good format, useful illustrations and wonderful contextual information. I can only assume that the one negative review I can see, came from someone with considerable experience. As a 3D Design for Sustainability student, I, and my fellow course-mates, have found this book to be a valuable access point to many key traditional processes and contemporary applications, that are otherwise very hard to find practical guidance on. Thanks Oaks and Mills!!

This is a really helpful book for those people who like the idea of making coppicing work for them, but also for people like me who enjoy small scale wood crafting. It clearly explains the qualities of different woods and how to work with them, and is easy to follow as it is presented and written in user-friendly language, with plenty of references for further reading if required. It's inspired me to plant more hazel and ash in my little bit of woodland in France, and to try my hand at charcoal making and simple hurdles for the garden.

A really lovely book, bought for my husband for Christmas. We have a small coppice that is in need of some TLC and this book is perfect! Ideas with regard to looking after the trees, correct planting. Also loads of ideas for crafting your own things from the coppice - fencing, weaving, etc. My hubby is very happy with this book & is thoroughly enjoying it!

Had more about managing a woodland than making things. Also included sections on the financial side of managing woodland which I wasn't really interested in. There was not enough detail as to how to make individual items. If you need a lot of detailed instructions as to how to make things I wouldn't opt for this tome as the one for you. perhaps I should have tracked the book down first and have a read before buying but it's still an interesting read.
