What a great day we had with Phil on this coppicing course. It was both informative and enjoyable. We were hoping to gain some knowledge on how to maintain our woodland and Phil certainly helped point us in the right direction. We would highly recommend this course for those with no experience or some, suitable for everyone!
We will definitely be in touch with Phil for further advice on our woodland in the future.
