Hazel and Dogwood coppice re-growth




New growth on coppiced hazel stools can grow very rapidly



The shoots are red at first and then turn green as the chlorophyll increases.


This hazel, coppiced in the winter of 2013-14 has grown as much as 3 metres in some places, despite the ravages of deer.  (The dead tree is an oak which had its bark stripped)


And last year's growth on the dogwood cut in 2014-15 is similarly vigorous.
