Pruning and Felling

This row of trees hasn’t been coppiced for a very long time, and needs a lot of work to bring it back in shape. The ash trees had outgrown everything else, and needed to be cut to the ground. There was also a lot of holly which also needed to be cut. A couple of smaller oak trees, however, could be left, and their lower branches removed, in order to help them make long, straight timber.
