Coed y Diwedd is a young replanted woodland just outside Ruthin, a charming town with all the amenities one could wish for. With three growing seasons under its belt the former conifer wood is now very much a woodland again with native plants and trees growing with profusion. The planting is comprised of a simple but diverse mix of native broadleaves including beech, oak, birch and rowan. Some native ash and sycamore are showing their colours amongst the planted trees along with privet, holly and hazel. The species choice is well suited to this site and thanks to a judicious weeding regime the trees have established well, with some now standing a few metres tall.
The developing habitat is also attracting an increasing variety of wildlife with wildflowers and soft grasses providing homes for insects and birds. Within the wood are a few large pine trees, a token to the former cover of trees and providing a great perch for raptors.
The wood lies on gently sloping ground with an easterly aspect. A slightly elevated position gives attractive views over the Clwydian Range to the east.
Access is directly off a quiet public road via a short well build hard stone track providing 2WD access at all times of the year.
Coed y Diwedd presents a real opportunity to acquire an affordable slice of rural charm.
If It Were Mine
Under the terms of the Forestry Commission felling licence the number of planted trees should be maintained for a further 7 years where it might then be appropriate to thin out some of the less desirable stems. I would continue to weed as necessary and perhaps a little formative pruning to encourage clean stems.
It could be a great place to position a beehive and sample the local nectar!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
