Itchen Country Park nature trail
This woodland has been coppiced for centuries to supply the local community with firewood, building and craft materials. This form of management also creates excellent conditions for wildlife and so is continued today. Trees such as Ash, Hazel and Alder are cut to the ground in winter leaving a coppice stool from which new shoots sprout and grow into thin straight poles. Taller trees, known as standards, are left to grow to maturity providing larger timber. Today the wood is sold to make paper or charcoal.
