Connecting Copses

The woodlands of the Island are unique in the UK for supporting populations of Red squirrel, Dormice and Bechstein's bat. They also form an important part of our industrial and agricultural heritage having been important sources of material for shipbuilding, charcoal burning and coppice products. 

Working with woodland owners and woodland contractors Connecting Copses is encouraging the sustainable management of these valuable habitats via a range of approaches and has led to the creation of the fabulous IW Coppice Group.
