April 1, 2008 – Coppicing Willows

Last year we planted a number of varieties of ornamental willows. 
It’s now time to coppice (or prune) the willows back to the ground to prevent them from becoming trees and encourage the smaller stems we can use for floral arrangements.


Here’s the willows before coppicing.


When the job is complete it doesn’t look like much!
