During the Scottish Crannog Centre’s ‘Regenerating Hazel Coppice‘ conference in April 2013, delegates suggested that there should be a network of some kind for people involved in coppicing in Scotland. Reforesting Scotland followed this up by producing the 2014 Coppice Network Study Report funded by Forestry Commission Scotland. We are now exploring the idea further in partnership with the Crannog Centre, the Scottish Wild Harvests Association and other interested parties.
In 2019 a Scottish Coppice Network Facebook Group was started – please join it if you can. There are ongoing discussions to create a more formal group, affiliated with the National Coppice Federation.
