Chestnut Copse is set in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding National Beauty, with the surrounding landscape being largely wooded or agricultural farmland. This peaceful wood is ideally situated some 30 minutes’ drive west of Hemel Hempstead in rural Hertfordshire.
A hard granite track leads to the woodland’s edge, where initially you come to an area of well-established oak and mixed broadleaf in tree shelters with birch natural regeneration. The remaining woodland is mature, with several impressively tall oaks towards the north. Despite the woodland’s name, there are very few chestnut trees to be found, but veteran hornbeam coppice grow along the eastern boundary with areas of conifer, larch and Norway spruce growing to the west. The remaining woodland is composed of tall beech, birch and other species.
Woodpeckers can often be heard and other species spotted include owls and numerous woodland song birds. The canopy opens in places, resulting in several pleasantly secluded areas with honeysuckle, hazel and holly in the understorey. The eastern boundary is fenced between the wood and Kiln Road, a quiet country lane. There appears to be an old woodland management access point along this boundary, which is no longer in use. Within the wood signs of former management include an old track which runs from north to south.
If It Were Mine
I would remove tree shelters and where needed, gently respace the natural regeneration. In the longer-term, I would consider lightly thinning some of the conifer, thus yielding a moderate quantity of useful timber.
