Note about nitrogen realease: In a PDC course I took last year, we discussed whether coppicing/chopping was necessary for nitrogen release. Our instructor "argued" that because roots die during the natural cycles of plants, that nitrogen is still being released.. just not at the extreme rate coppicing might. Therefor, it's not actually necessary to coppice for nitrogen. One can also deduce that pruning will achieve this same effect.
