    Description

    Coppicing of eucalypts saves replanting after harvesting, but plan for coppice before planting seedlings. Select a species that coppices in the planned season of harvest; plan spacing and harvesting methods so that harvesting will not damage stumps; plan coppice management. Best coppice is produced by spring harvest with chain saws, low stumps, no bark or root damage, and no debris left on stumps. Problems are fire hazard, regeneration from seeds, coppice reduction, and killing an unwanted coppice crop.
