Effects of Coppicing on the Growth of Oak Timber Trees in the Bradfield Woods, Suffolk

Abstract

(1) The growth in diameter of standard oak trees is increased by a measurable, though small, degree, by the temporary removal of their surrounding underwood by coppicing. This effect is demonstrable for at least 9 yr following coppicing. (2) The tree-ring chronology for the Bradfield Woods can be cross-matched with those of several other oak chronologies in the British Isles. The level of agreement is independent of the distance between the sites.
