About Leeds Coppice Workers

Find out more about the employer here.

Leeds Coppice Workers operates as a workers co-operative committed to restoring and managing neglected and underused woodlands in the Leeds area.

We aim to create jobs in Leeds woodlands for our members and to promote the use of locally sourced woodland products within the Leeds area. We also aim to reintegrate local people to their woodlands, show how woodland can be managed in sustainable and ecologically sound ways and to train and share skills in woodland related activities.

Coppicing is an ancient and sustainable method of managing woods where trees that have been cut close to the ground grow back with multiple stems . These are cut on and regular cycle and used to make many useful products.
