Why is coppicing good for wildlife?

Wildlife benefits The extra light from coppicing encourages plants to germinate and flower which will attract insects. As the coppice poles grow birds will use the dense growth for shelter and nesting.

Why are woodlands managed?

Woodlands are actively managed for a number of reasons. These include maximizing the yield of economically important products such as timber and game, as well as for conservation and biodiversity. Recreational access is also becoming increasingly important. A woodland may be managed for one or more of these reasons.
