TQ8550 : Chestnut coppice

taken 13 years ago, near to Platt's Heath, Kent, Great Britain

Chestnut coppice
Chestnut coppice
A puzzle - the wood was cut some time in the last year, the trimmings burnt, the wood cut to length and stacked but apparently never collected for processing into fencing; maybe this is the rejected wood or maybe there is a recession in the fencing trade. The show of foxgloves next spring should be good, judging by the huge number of seedlings.
This is a sweet chestnut plantation, Castanea sativa, grown for fencing. Not to be confused with the conker tree or horse chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum.
