NCFed – Home to the UK Coppice Industry

The National Coppice Federation has grown out of the wish for regional coppice groups to unite under one banner as a federation of groups.

If you work in coppice then:

  • Join NCFed by either joining your local coppice group or create a new group where one does not already exist
  • Book your ticket to the annual gathering and meet other coppice workers, learn new skills and add your voice to the many
  • Get involved – contribute to this website, participate in the forum, projects and campaigns
  • Be informed about issues affecting biosecurity, pests, products, health & safety and legislation
  • Sign up to the Cleft Stick – the NCFed Newsletter – keep in touch with whats happening nationally and regionally
  • Take advantage of special deals – checkout the amazing Insurance deal for NCFed members
