Woodlands For Sale Northern England
Scots Wood, Coalburns, Tyne & Wear 12.60 acres (approx.) of mature pine freehold for £46,000 (reduced from £49,500) [#283]. Print Format
A mature windfirm stand of Scots pine with a ‘cathedral feel’ combining amenity with the prospect of tax-free timber income.
Scots Wood is part of a forested area just 10 miles west of Newcastle. The majority of the wood is mature Scots pine (about 70 years old) with some notable stems.
The wood has been well thinned historically and appears windfirm. It therefore offers some flexibility on when to realise the tax-free timber revenue it contains. The moderate well-drained slopes promise easy harvesting (subject to the necessary felling consents) and the extraction route is already well proven. Timber marketing is assisted by proximity to main roads and a number of local mills. The site is sheltered and the fertile soils will aid early establishment of the next generation of trees.
Designated as a ‘plantation on an ancient woodland site’ there is currently the added benefit of favourable grant treatment under the English Woodland Grant Scheme for restocking after any fellings with native hardwoods.
Scots Wood is both attractive and secluded, and owners may well choose to forego the promise of early timber income so as to enjoy the undoubted amenity it offers. The site is car accessible and there is a plethora of wildlife in the area including deer, buzzard, red kite, fox and badger. The wood is sold with the track along its western edge.
Note: this area was historically mined and a report from 1996 indicates the presence of two mine entries near the top eastern boundary approximately as shown on the plan.
