Aging old coppice trees

Hello all,

I'm trying to age an old coppice tree and am finding it surprisingly hard to 
find much data from Forestry Commission, Ancient Tree Forum or academic 
papers.

I've got an unsubstantiated amount of 0.3 m diameter/ 100 years measured at 
base, but can't find where that has come from.

I'm surprised that the ATF seems fairly ambivalent to coppice trees as surely 
these trees are likely to be oldest and commonly found. Fair enough, they 
don't look as impressive, but that can't be a reasonable reason to give them 
so little attention.

Anyway, if there is anywhere you can guide me, I'd be most grateful.

Cheers

Dave
