Centre of the wood: ///gambles.latches.barmaid
Hoppers Wood is a deciduous woodland that was partially coppiced about 10 years ago. There are oak, ash, elm, sycamore and maple standards, with stools of regenerated hazel and ash in abundance. This parcel of woodland is situated on the edge of a larger wooded area and provides an affordable opportunity for those considering woodland ownership.
It is designated as an Ancient Woodland and the entire wood is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) relating to plants and features that are common in old woodlands.
Looking out from the wood there is a view of large arable fields and gentle rolling Nottinghamshire countryside. The woodland itself is rectangular in shape and is slightly elevated from the track but generally flat. Throughout summer there are displays of celandine, anemone and dog’s mercury. The woodland floor is otherwise unhindered by vegetation thanks to the significant shade from the upper and lower canopy trees.
The wood is accessed along a hard surfaced track from a securely gated entrance. The track is suitable for a car at all times of the year and there is a soft short track allowing an owner to drive into the wood.
Hoppers Wood is a fantastic parcel in picturesque Nottinghamshire countryside, just east of Lincolnshire. It is close to the village of Eakring and fifteen minutes by car from Newark on Trent.
The entire forested area has 7 years remaining on a 10 year management plan outlining, without obligation, the potential future management of the woodland that is in tune with the aspirations of the SSSI.
If It Were Mine
I would look continue to cut the hazel stools in a rotation and provide canes and runners to gardeners and allotment owners. I would encourage oak and birch over the sycamore and ash, retaining deadwood habitats and maybe put up some nesting boxes.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
