Caption: A section of coppiced hazel, Corylus avellana, within Ashwellthorpe Wood, an Ancient woodland in Norfolk, UK.The pictures show the development of many small poles from the base of the tree, which was cut to the ground 5 years before this pictures was taken. It also shows the early growth of the ground layer; here - in April - with Wood anemones, Anemone nemorosa, already in flower ( white ).Coppicing is an ancient method of woodland management. Scattered trees ( the standards ) are allowed to grow to maturity in order to yield timber, and the understorey trees (the coppice) are cut to the ground on a periodic basis with an interval of around 10 years.The trees in this picture will be allowed to grow for several years before their small wood is next harvested for hurdles, fencing, basket-making and firewood
