    Hi, sorry but not a present member of site, could you please ask your members if “they ever have to pay” for coppicing on other peopls land, i thought it was widely understood that the coppice worker takes the wood as payment and the owner/s gets left with a managed woodland,
    regards tony eames. west wales.

      Tony – I think it does vary depending on the site, is there a grant, ease of access, quality/value of wood – specification for cutting and improving the woodland etc. It was not that long ago coppice worker got paid to restore but it is a changing financial landscape with the increase value of wood fuel. I know of an agreement in Dorset where the Coppice worker is restoring the neglected coppice for free in return for the wood, there are agreements where the coppice worker gets the woodland grant and percentage of the wood – – especially where the specfiction for clearing brash, increasing stock density etc is high. No clear answer but have asked members to comment.

    I agree with Richard. There are a lot of factors to consider.
    Market forces being a big one, if there are other people willing to pay, and you need the wood, then you need to put your hand in your pocket. If the owner is keen to have the work done and there is no one else to do it, he’ll be the one sorting you out.
