Report of the COST Action FP 1301 "Eurocoppice". As conclusive remarks, "In coppice forests, man?s influence has been more intensive than in other forest types and neglected or disrupted management activities can have more serious silvicultural and ecological consequences than in more ?natural? forest systems. Most of these coppiced stands have been regularly treated as coppice and provided local population with firewood, charcoal, tan, fodder and grazing as well as shelter for animals and a large variety of poles used in agriculture. Despite some decades of decline, the current economic t ends point to a good future for coppice management. Active coppice management has a huge potential to build in local importance and can be a vital part of rural economies, helping to support local communities. Coppice forests can play an important role in the development of rural areas, avoiding the depopulation of mountainous regions and migration. Rural development policies should encourage and promote the diversification of rural activities and multi-functional models that are suitable for coppice forests. It is important to continue an active management of coppice forests to continue it as a system of forestry. Without active management there will be no coppice and without income from coppice, there will be no management. Thus, abandoning them might not only lead to environmental degradation and ecological catastrophes, but also to an impoverishment of rural communities. One of the priorities should be to promote the efficiency of coppiced forests and to pursue this management as a system. It is not seen to be viable to create more coppice from high forest, but to try to dissuade foresters from trying to convert more coppice to high forest. Coppice forest may enjoy the benefits of the modern green economy only, if coppice management is modernized.
