Jersey Wood is a gorgeous mixed species woodland consisting primarily of even aged oak trees, with ash, sycamore, rowan, hawthorn and even a lone western hemlock tree. Situated at the entrance to a larger woodland in the middle of the Herefordshire countryside, this woodland is extremely quiet and secluded and a perfect getaway.
As the seasons pass, the colours in this woodland are very impressive - especially in autumn. The ash leaves are the first to turn as the weather cools transforming to pale yellow, the oak then turns a lovely dark brown and red, with the hemlock providing a continuous dark green and the sycamore adding more yellows and browns. This produces a picturesque autumnal vista and is a marvellous sight to behold.
The woodland has been thinned out in recent years which has provided some growing space for the oaks. Bramble bushes have taken advantage of the increase in sunlight and have bloomed in the gaps, some self-seeded trees (mostly ash and sycamore) are also competing for space and light too with some success. At the time of our last visit, the bramble bushes were fully laden with fruit, the temptation to harvest the fruit to make a fresh blackberry pie or some jam was very strong! Red campion, a variety of ferns, a mixture of wild grasses and fungi are also growing throughout the woodland.
A combination of squirrels and songbirds (and the occasional buzzard) are frequent visitors to the woodland and it is suspected that the bramble is home to some dormice too.
Access off the main road is via a short stoned track and through a couple of gates, surrounded by apple orchards grown for a local cider making farm. These factors, as well as the immediate agricultural land make for an exceptionally quiet and secluded space, perfect for someone looking for a little retreat.
If It Were Mine
There is a flat area towards the top end of the woodland which would be a great place to camp if that is something enjoyed by the family.
The oak don’t need any further management for a number of years, however I would look to underplant some of the gaps between the trees with a mixture of species such as cherry, as I have a particular fondness for cherry blossom in the spring.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
