Background information and definitions
Coppicing involves repeatedly felling trees at the base and allowing them to regrow. The effects on bats are likely to be mixed. Temporarily removing tree cover may be beneficial for bat species that forage in open spaces or along edge habitats. However, coppice with dense regrowth may only be suitable for some bat species that are adapted to cluttered habitats. Older trees retained within coppice may provide roosting opportunities.
