RE: What is Coppicing - Quick Intro

in #homesteading4 years ago

Great video. Here in Thailand they do a version of coppicing but instead of cutting close to the ground, they leave the massive stem and cut off EVERYTHING at around 3 or 4 metres. The trees look AWFUL for a month of two when they do it, but then spring back with such incredible lush growth and abundance, fruiting brilliantly. Really informative and interesting post. Thank you.

Thanks! That method is called pollarding :) It is generally done to prevent animal browse on the new growth. Do you know if that is an issue there?

Animal grazing, not so much. Just RAMPANT out-of-control tropical growth. I generally garden with a machete in hand. LOL... Nice to know it has a proper name.

Lol, that makes a lot of sense!
