Mount Wood is a cheerful mature oak woodland within a 5 minute's drive of the centre of Knighton. Positioned along a recently upgraded hard surfaced track, the wood sits on a charming hill that offers superb views across the valleys.
The trees in this wood are mostly sessile oak, noted for the strong durable timber they produce and are host to a thriving ecology due to their steady rate of growth. This unique upland oak setting contains an abundance of flora including bilberry, ferns and bluebells, providing a colourful display of flowers in the spring and summer months. Bryophytes, lichens and fungi are plentiful, further evidence of an undisturbed and rich woodland habitat. A delight for nature lovers, Mount Wood is home to a wide variety of wildlife including the fox and badger. Such a rich ecology supports breeding birds such as pied flycatcher, redstart, and wood warbler with frequently heard tawny owls and woodpeckers.
As an amenity woodland, Mount Wood is a great space to explore and enjoy with the family. Frequent weekend visits or camping out in the summer would create memories to cherish for developing minds. As a finite resource, this wood will one day produce some fine timber and the new owner can take pride in sustaining the future of the woodland for the next generation.
If It Were Mine
The trees are developing well in this wood and silviculturally I would ensure that favoured trees have space in the canopy to grow by very sensitively felling those that are deprived. A small shelter could be built to dry any timber and provide shelter for the would-be forester.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
