Prime Coppice Working Woodland

Restoring nature Restoring people

Prime Coppice is 52 acres of woodland and woodland pasture set in the beautiful Marshwood Vale in West Dorset. Ruth and Kit Vaughan have owned the site since 2011 and are now restoring the woodland, bringing the coppice back into rotation, opening up the woodland rides and tracks and increasing the biodiversity through careful management.

Our vision at Prime Coppice is to develop a sustainable woodland which delivers social, environmental and economic benefits, we are also looking at how to manage the woodland in the context of climate change. We provide woodland products, volunteering opportunities, course and woodland management services.

We have a regular group of working woodlanders that volunteer and that come and work at Prime Coppice, we can also host volunteers for a few weeks at a time.

We run a variety of courses in our woodland workshop and camp. Courses include:

  • Green woodworking
  • Bushcraft skills
  • Plant identification and use
  • Coppicing and coppice restoration
  • Charcoal making and wood chunking
  • Managing small woodlands and woodland management plans
  • Sourcing, cutting, stacking and burning firewood
