About the Event

Coppicing is one of the oldest methods of woodland management, practised in the UK for hundreds, if not thousands,  of years. However, in the last century or so, estimates are that actively managed coppice woodland area has fallen by nearly 95%. But we're trying to change that by gathering together with people who want to make a difference.

For those camping, the weekend kicks off with Friday night social on our site on the Cardross Estate from 7pm. Otherwise, we start on Saturday morning at 10am, when we'll meet at Kirkton Wood near Aberfoyle, have a tour of the hazel coupes and then do some cutting. It's back to our site on Saturday evening for a meal and discussion. On Sunday, we'll have coppice-based crafts throughout the day for you to try your hand at. We'll also have discussions across the weekend. A full programme will be published closer to the event.

The standard ticket includes access to activities on Saturday and Sunday. The food ticket includes meals from Friday night through to Sunday lunchtime. If you would like to stay on site, please book a free camping space.
