Neglected coppice stools become derelict and under a dense canopy fade out,
but hazel can be managed in the open as a small tree.  If you want nuts you
have to leave it longer than the usual coppice cycle anyway.

My experience in woodland management is that once hazel has been
coppiced it needs to be re-done on a regular rotation. Old coppice that
is left tends to fall apart and is difficult to restore.  Eventually the
tree just succumbs and dies.
