A mixed woodland of mainly broadleaved trees, with a few scattered Norway spruce. The woodland was replanted after the felling of a previous conifer crop around 12 years ago and is now well established. It was planted with mixed broadleaves including Oak, Ash, Birch and Cherry, but has since had vigorous Birch natural regeneration. The young trees are now around 20 feet high or more and growing well. The woodland would benefit from some thinning out of the natural regeneration should a new owner wish to invest a little time and effort.
Occasional mature broadleaves are found within the woodland and along the boundaries, especially Beech, which are an attractive feature of field boundaries and roadsides in this part of Wales. Scattered through the woodland are also groups of Norway spruce regeneration which have grown from the seed dropped by the previous crop of conifers. These could be retained to add diversity to the species and landscape or removed if a new owner preferred an exclusively broadleaved woodland.
The woodland is in a very peaceful location in a beautiful part of Wales and close to the market town of Tregaron. A quiet country road runs along the eastern boundary, with a gate and short track providing access inside. The land is largely flat and there are several small streams crossing the property. The ground conditions are moist and there could be opportunities for pond construction with only a modest amount of work.
Permission was granted to build a forestry style building within the woodland in 2002. The size was stipulated as 20 metres by 7 metres. However, this permission was never exercised and has now elapsed. It is likely that a reapplication would be viewed favourably.
The woodland is surrounded by grazing land on all sides and all boundaries are fenced.
If It Were Mine
I would carefully select the trees that I wanted to favour and lightly thin the trees around them. I would reapply for Permitted Development to build a small shed to store firewood and any equipment needed to work in the woodland.
