Woodlands For Sale South Wales
Turret Wood, Ffostrasol, Ceredigion, South Wales. 7.5 acres (approx.) of young mixed species with excellent access. Freehold £18,000 [#374]
Eight-year-old replanted mixed woodland on a clean and level site with a gentle southerly aspect and served by a good hard track in the heart of rural South Wales.
Turret Wood lies on the southeast edge of a larger woodland area that was felled and replanted in about 2004. A Forestry Commission survey of Turret Wood and the adjacent woodland in December 2011 confirmed it to be well stocked (average >3,500 stems per hectare) with all grant obligations fully met and discharged.
After felling the previous conifer crop, the site was cleared and replanted with a variety of native hardwoods and shrubs including oak, ash, rowan and hazel which are now established and growing solidly. The planted stock has since been consolidated by naturally regenerated birch, rowan and willow. Occasional Sitka spruce and Lodgepole pine have arisen from the seed of the previous crop adding further to species variety and landscape diversity. The density and variety of species present now gives opportunity to steer the future development of this young woodland.
A former small quarry on the northwest edge has flooded to become a willow-fringed pond. There is clear scope to enlarge and enhance this feature.
The wood is served by an excellent newly-upgraded hard track which links from the public road to private vehicular pull-ins at both ends of the wood (C and E on the plan).
Sitting at the junction of forestry and farmland amidst the beautiful rolling countryside of rural Ceredigion, Turret Wood enjoys an open outlook to the south across fields and woodland and offers an attractive and manageable slice of South Wales at a very modest price.

A pack of legal information (including up-to-date searches) has been prepared by the vendor's solicitor. This can be made available to the purchaser at a cost of £100 + VAT (representing a considerable saving).
