Trees & Shrubs
Coppicing is an old technique of cutting plants hard back, almost to ground level, to encourage vigorous new growth. Historically, hazels were coppiced and resultant stems harvested at different ages to meet different needs, for example fencing, hop posts, building materials or firewood.
You may find that plants are in unsuitable positions in your garden for many reasons. Your ideas for your garden may have changed, you may be extending your house or you may simply have underestimated the size of a plant.
You can transplant many plants, though the size you can move will be limited by what you can lift. Note that soil is very heavy, especially when wet.
