Coronet Cuts

 When trees die, they still have a useful purpose.  As a habitat, or Standing Dead Wood, trees can offer a home to multiple mini-beasts, fungi and mammals and it is important to retain as much habitat like this as possible.  These cuts called "coronet" cuts are a way of mimicking natures own breakages in the wood.  They offer little niches and spaces for organisms to find their way in and is slowly becoming more recognised as a valid technique for trees situated in a rural or woodland environment.
