I did not know that coppicing was widely unknown to north americans. Fascinating! I coppice my forest in Germany for firewood. I use mainly beech, birch, maple and oak there.

All broadleaves coppice but some are stronger than others. The strongest are ash, hazel, oak, sweet chestnut and lime whilst the weakest include beech, wild cherry and poplar. Most conifers do not coppice.
