About your wood
Coldfall Wood is a fascinating area of ancient woodland covering 14 hectares.
The wood has historically been managed through coppicing.
Coppicing is where trees are cut down at the base. New growth then comes from the stump.
The tradition of coppicing at Coldfall Wood was brought back in the 1990s. The cut trees are left to naturally decay.
The dead wood contributes to a healthy woodland. It makes a great home for beetles and other insects and fungi. These provide food for woodland creatures like birds and hedgehogs.
Coppicing also allows in light for wildflowers and other plants. This attracts butterflies and other animals. 150 additional plant species were recorded in Coldfall Wood since November 2006.
