Nestled in a valley in the foothills of the Clwydian mountain range, Coed-y-Waen offers plenty of opportunities for recreation, nature conservation and timber production. Entering the woodland from the quiet road - Ffordd y Waen - the track through the woodland follows a gentle stream meandering through the valley. This natural corridor is host to a wide variety of mature broadleaved trees including oak, sycamore, ash, alder and cherry. Further up the slope is densely populated larch, Douglas fir and chestnut which are reaching maturity.
The stream is shadowed by a narrow track providing foot access the length of the wood. Further up the bank an old extraction ride follows the contour and with a little groundwork could be made suitable for timber extraction.
Walking the path, the banks of the stream are abundant with woodland flora providing a colourful display of flowers in the summer and the opulent smell of garlic in the spring. At the end of the path emerges open pasture with commanding views of the countryside, noted for its outstanding natural beauty.
The trees are ready for harvesting now, or alternatively could be retained for the longer term, perhaps with some careful light thinning. Douglas fir is one of the most valuable commercial softwood timber grown in the UK, and this woodland contains some excellent specimens.
There is a layby outside the wood which sits on Ffordd y Waen, connecting to the A541. Within 10 minutes’ drive of Coed-y-Waen are the towns of Mold and Denbigh as well as the A55 North Wales Expressway, thus providing a link to North Wales and Chester, and onwards to the national motorway network.
If It Were Mine
After improving the access, I would clear fell small areas of conifer and restock with oak and hornbeam.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
