Woodlands For Sale South East England
Promise Wood, near Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. 5.06 acres (approx.) of freehold woodland for £27,900 [#250].
A mainly Scots Pine woodland with scattered mixed broadleaves and good access along a grassy track. Just outside the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent.
Promise Wood is a mainly Scots Pine woodland, with scattered broadleaves including Oak, Ash, Beech, Alder, Willow, Hazel, Holly, Hawthorn and Sweet Chestnut. The understorey is mainly Birch, Rowan, regenerating Ash and Sweet Chestnut. There is also a band of Beech trees about 20 metres wide that run parallel to the road. Quite a surprising diversity that gives this woodland a very interesting feel.
The conifers are fast approaching maturity and one management option would be to slowly thin them out to allow the broadleaves to become dominant. This slow conversion is a good low-impact solution that would produce an attractive mixed woodland without the trauma of clear felling.
Some of the more open glades are carpeted in bluebells and wood anemones in the spring. The ground rises gently to the south, giving generally good drainage. A shallow seasonal watercourse greatly adds to the habitat diversity of the woodland.
The woodland is classified as Ancient Woodland, which means it has had continuous tree cover since 1600. It is full of wildlife including owls, hawks, buzzards, woodcock, a multitude of songbirds and many Fallow deer, including a rare white one.
The access to the woodland is along a good grassy track. It lies at around 150 metres above sea level and the soils are freely draining fertile loams.
Promise Wood has other woodland on three sides and the road on the fourth.
