I did a quick search and was surprised to find that this video hasn't been shared here yet. As mentioned in this forum, Dave Jacke (of Edible Forest Garden fame) is working on what will probably be another classic book on agroforestry.

This video is a presentation he gave at DAcres of New Hampshire. Thanks are likely due to Josh Trout and Dave Jacke and the DAcres crew for the video.

Dave covers (in varying degrees of depth):

  • different types of buds, and what we know about their role in coppicing/pollarding
  • coppicing
  • pollarding
  • historical and modern techniques
  • uses and products from coppice systems
  • silvopasture and pollarding -- **with interesting research about cool-season grasses increasing in productivity under light shade of coppice system**
  • fodder crop details: esp. Morus alba (white mulberry) and Robinier pseudoacacia (black locust).
  • the rejuvenating (anti-aging) effect coppicing has on trees
  • some coppice compatible species
  • coppice spacing considerations
  • when to coppice for different types of yields/goals/products
  • some natural fencing options (to keep out deer and other animals) using coppice products or living fencing




  • Go Dave Go!

    Great find! I'm sure I'm not alone is waiting for their book release... this is critical information. I'm glad they are taking their time to synthesize information from thousands of papers. I bet the final product will match Edible Forest Gardens in terms of credibility and information density.

    Tina Paxton : Apparently this was ether held at DAcres and filmed there, or a crew from DAcres got permission to film it, generally the film crew sets up in the back
    of the class to not end up cheating the people who paid to go to that class !

    So - for more information on that list you could try the link below ! If you get the list ask if it can be shared freely !

    For the good of the Crafts ! Big AL

    Thanks Allen! I have now emailed DAcres and I also found an email address for Mr Jacke and emailed him directly. Hopefully, I will get a response from one or the other. If I do, I will request permission to share the lists here.
     
    I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
