Acorn Wood is a fine example of a mid-aged oak and beech woodland. The trees in this area are approximately 50 to 60 years old and have grown nice and straight and should produce some high quality timber. Further species growing here include hazel, hawthorn and the odd ash and sycamore.
The woodland can be found at the end of a recently upgraded track and is suitable for year-round access in a 2WD vehicle. Nestled at the foot of a steep easterly facing slope which provides shelter from the elements the woodland is well-protected. There is even a handy stoned section off the main track that would be perfect place to dry some firewood or to pull the car off the main track.
The woodland floor consists of deep brown earth with some sand and clay beneath, providing a perfect growing environment for trees.
Squirrels and birds are abundant in numbers and badgers known to be in the wider woodland are likely visitors to Acorn Wood to search for food.
If It Were Mine
I might consider felling a tree or two to open up the canopy to create spaces where the sun can reach the woodland floor as this is sure to encourage some wildflowers.
A potential woodworker could look to use any felled timber to create lovely furniture for the home or it would burn very well once it is well seasoned.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
