This one is the Corymbia, lopped I’m guessing about 9 years earlier. Our experienced logging crews are trained to harvest multiple rotations in a manner that protects live stumps, minimizes soil compaction, and optimizes natural regeneration for future coppice. Coppicing is a traditional method of woodland management which exploits the capacity of many species of trees to put out new shoots from their stump or roots if cut down. This will only be possible if we grow these forests at least a generation in advance. It is an old tradition of woodland management used for conservation and as a sustainable way to produce timber without the need to plant new trees. As you can see above, this coppice system still resembles a functioning Read this (and think twice before buying candles), Ancient Gardening Techniques from South America, Food from Perennial(ising) Plants in Temperate Climate Australia, for January 2013, Redesigning Resources – Permaculture Ethics, Food and Communities with Geoff Lawton (Video).

So if a blackwood gets harvested and shows feature – which makes the wood a lot more valuable – it can be left to reshoot and make some more valuable timber. The capacity of the tree to regenerate then rests with the few remaining buds on the lower trunk and these sometimes fail for one reason or another, resulting in the death of the stump. Many Eucalyptus species coppice readily and overseas, large areas of blue gum plantations are actually managed in short rotations as coppice. (5 x 5 meters).

Unfortunately, forestry has been painted in a very bad light by environmental groups over the past couple of decades, and interest in this important profession has dwindled greatly. Eucalyptus species are suitable candidates for CWS management because: there are large worldwide plantation areas, sprouting capacity is high, and eucalypts are multipurpose species. Of course there is the argument that coppiced trees are of a lesser quality, due to the un-proportioned root mass, making the tree grow too fast and having less density in the wood, but as any carpenter in Australia would admit, the pine from plantations we use for our home constructions is rubbish. For unsightly or leggy growth, cut back to about 6 inches from the ground. I eagerly await your response.

Few realise that it will be the capacity of forests to store carbon as structural timber and fuel which may allow humanity to be sustained by renewable resources in a low energy future.”, The current lock up mentality certainly doesn’t address the quality aspect in the first paragraph, nor biodiversity in many cases according to research (particularly unmanaged regrowth forest). I totally agree about old growth forest have been all ready logged, just having a go about our system of state forestry in regards to conifir platations and why we have moved away from coppicing of eucalypts to a true monoculture in forestry. It’s ironic, because as David Holmgren writes, in Australia a well managed, selectively logged native forest, with the supporting biodiversity that contains, can be the most sustainable form of timber production. Coppicing and pollarding are best initiated early in the life of the tree, rather than used on over large or damaged mature trees, which may or may not regenerate in response. Coppice Management. Thinning of regrowth forest is the other big discussion that needs to be had. Ben Law, author of The Woodland Way, also talks about the various products that come from a coppiced forest in England. Eucalyptus stands can be managed by coppicing, however, in several Brazilian regions reduced yield has been observed with harvesting successions. Currently, Eucalyptus is primarily harvested for landscape mulch, but markets are likely to expand into bioenergy and pulpwood applications. Eucalypts, depending on species and seed source, generally coppice or stump-sprout vigorously. Many of the ‘old growth’ forests which the hardcore activists want set aside as National Park have in fact been expertly managed on a long term selective logging rotation. Coppicing is a traditional form of woodland management, popular since mediaeval times, especially in parts of England.

When a tree is cut to a stump, called a coppice stool, growth is stimulated. The essential oil found in the leaves is a powerful antiseptic and is used all over the world for relieving coughs and … In Australia we really need to get back to our European roots of coppiced forest systems. By doing so, we can create a far more valuable stand for future generations on a number of levels (compared with the stagnant, moribund crap you see in so many places). We mill for lumber. A unique learning opportunity focused on how we can provide nutritious affordable food while enhancing biodiversity. management, respectively, and expected coppice yields, the LEV of CSAs under G3 at 1025 trees/acrewas $561/acreor an equal annual equivalent of ~$56/acre/year. [email protected], Your email address will not be published. A very useful piece of work in Australia would be to determine some best practice coppicing approaches for various species and products. Although four types of buds are recognised in eucalypts, coppice regrowth in Eucalyptus grandis following felling is confined to development from epicormic buds, which are situated in the live bark, or cambium, at the base of the tree (Penfold and Willis 1961). https://i.imgur.com/egVdlx4.jpg Eucalyptus coppice management is common worldwide, and is used to manage plantations that produce wood for the pulp and biomass industries. And any tree, for that matter. Required fields are marked *, David Spicer’s approach to design and education is based upon a proven emphasis on practicality, having over 18 years experience in Permaculture education working and teaching with Bill Mollison at the Permaculture Institute (Tasmania) and Geoff Lawton, the managing director of the Permaculture Research Institute of Australia and Zaytuna Farm. In my childhood my father cut and distilled eucalyptus oil in a four year coppice rotation — the same as his father and his father did, so you can see how perpetual this system is. This survival mechanism is exploited in commercial plantations for reestablishment following felling. Rather start again using seedlings raised from the improved seed now available in Uganda. Seasons of harvest and rotation age should be planned too. How Coppicing Works. When the tree is harvested, multiple shoots sprout from the cut stump to recapture the site and fuel new post-harvest growth. Absolutly mangment is different, a coppiced tree has a much greater tendentcy to break away from the stump so thats something to consider, diffently in the urban enviroment, the chainsaw, is a lttle stihl 023, my bigger saw is out of action at the monment which made it interesting to falling, having to do the back cut from both sides, I’m hoping to do a youtube video of falling soon, because I’ve certainly made mistakes when falling tree’s and would like other people to learn from them.
