Tranquil Wood lies just above the village of Rhewl in the heart of the Vale of Clwyd approximately midway between Denbigh and Ruthin. The wood is served by an excellent hard road which connects directly with the A525. This in turn links with the A55 dual carriageway some 20 minutes to the north, offering easy access from the North West via the M56 motorway.
The Wood lies amidst the lower pastures of the Vale of Clwyd, beneath the hills of the Clwydian Range on ground with just enough slope to ensure good drainage. Add in the fertile alkaline soils and good shelter and you have one of the very best sites for growing hardwoods in North Wales.
This medal-winning wood contains quality multi-aged hardwoods which testify to many years’ careful management. All species on site are growing vigorously and with good form. The ash are particularly suited to these conditions and they now form a fine over-storey of mature clean stems, along with some equally notable cherry and sycamore. Some of these valuable stems are ready to harvest but thanks to the sheltered and wind-firm site an owner may instead choose to enjoy the pleasure of their stature in-situ. If the choice is made to harvest, then the under-storey of regenerating and planted stems promise an abundant successional crop reducing the need for costly restocking.
Scattered through the wood there are also a few oak stems plus small coupes of ash and cherry aged between 10 and 20 years. These young trees are growing strongly with excellent form and would benefit from some high pruning to optimise their potential. In the sub-canopy there is a light shrub layer dominated by hazel and occasional holly. The floor is characteristic of long-established woodland supporting a variety of woodland flowers including wood anemone, dog’s mercury, bluebell, and ferns, along with a broad fauna of badgers, foxes, bats, buzzards and a wide range of woodland songbirds encouraged by a number of bird-boxes.
Tranquil Wood has pretty much everything - excellent access, privacy, gentle terrain, quality stems, beauty, habitat and first class amenity….plus an affordable price ticket.
If It Were Mine
I’d be a very happy chap!
