Lakeland Coppice products was formed in 2000 by Ian Taylor and has gradually grown with the help of BHMAT apprentices Saul Blenkarn and James Mitchell . over this time we have amassed a range of equipment that enables us to takle most jobs when renovating coppice or thinning woodlands . Our aim is to improve every wood we work , to increase the flaura and fauna and to make the best use of every bit of wood that comes out of the woodland .
When the chance came to take redundancy I jumped at the chance to set up in coppicing . One of the main reasons was I actually wanted to see something I had made. After several courses I started renovating my first bit of woodland in Windermere . The learning curve has been very steep but the experience wonderful . I have made various woodland craft items in this time from humble besoms to small timber framing jobs. I have been the chairman of the Coppice Association North West and I am currently the newsletter editor
