Hi Daron, Its great to see a post on coppicing and the UK Forestry Commission video provides a good overview of the potential of coppice for woodland biodiversity and uses of the harvested material, largely based on traditional tree species and uses. We are developing further possibilities at Holt Wood in Devon, UK, where we have established a medicinal forest garden and are experimenting with ways of cultivating and harvesting medicinal trees and shrubs. It is a 2.5 acre site previously a conifer plantation that we cleared in 2005 and replanted with native and introduced species for medicine, some also for food and fuel. Coppicing is especially good for sustainably producing 2-3 year old branches ideal for medicinal bark harvesting. There is a link to a news item about our project with Permaculture Magazine https://www.permaculture.co.uk/news/learning-about-medicinal-trees
