Coppicing
Coppicing is a management technique of cutting trees and shrubs to ground level allowing vigorous regrowth and a sustainable supply of timber for future generations.
Trees and shrubs that are cut down in this way can produce shoots that grow over 30cm in a week.
The benefits of coppicing are varied, including promoting ground vegetation (by letting light in), raw materials for thatching, fencing, kindling and charcoal making. Also coppiced trees live longer than non coppiced trees. All trees can be coppiced, but hazel, ash, lime and beech are common.
Sussex Ouse Valley Way
Opened in 2005, the Sussex Ouse Valley Way is a beautiful 42 mile journey that broadly follows the River Ouse from its source close to Lower Beeding in the High Weald to the sea at Seaford Bay. It is signed using a picture of the Ouse Valley Viaduct. Website: LinkExternal link
