Meathe Wood is a mature broadleaved woodland with a high canopy dominated by oak, chestnut, ash, poplar, birch and sycamore in smaller numbers. There are some impressive large trees in this wood offering aesthetic delight and huge ecological benefits.
The woodland floor is largely uncluttered but the open areas are dense with vegetation and young trees. You will find an abundance of alder, thorn, holly and hazel intertwined with vines and climbers.
The rich biodiversity includes woodland mammals – deer and foxes, whilst the birds include songbirds, owls and buzzards.
Positioned within a quiet rural setting there are lovely open views across fields to the south and west towards the village of Withybrook. The wood is flat with excellent access suitable for a car and a place to park and turn.
Meathe Wood is a very private wood in a great location, with superb access to Nuneaton, Coventry and Rugby. It offers an ideal retreat for those seeking outdoor activity whether it be a stroll round the wood, conservation work, crafts or useful management, producing a sustainable source of firewood.
If It Were Mine
I would undertake a gradual phase of re-spacing in the dense parts, encouraging the trees with good form to grow on. Some careful pruning would be a beneficial activity. I would control the sycamore and encourage some other tree species that do well in this area like beech and chestnut. A woodland shelter would be useful and provide somewhere to have a cuppa and enjoy the superb surroundings.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
