Redbrook Wood is a stunning beech and oak woodland with some incredible looking trees set in a lovely part of the Yorkshire countryside. With fields to the south and woodland on the other sides, it makes for a very tranquil retreat.
A recently upgraded track means getting to Redbrook Wood could not be easier. A hard stone track suitable for 2WD vehicles means you can enjoy the woodland whatever the weather. There is a short section of hard earth track to take you the final 40 metres into the woodland but this is on a flat section and will not impede access.
Under the fine oak and beech trees, there is a number of self-seeded, regenerating saplings vying for space and light in the canopy. There are also hazel, hawthorn, the odd ash and sycamore. Undoubtably the stand-out species is the beech in the southern part of the woodland, especially striking in the autumn months where the colours change and the yellows, reds, browns and greens create a stunning landscape.
Due to the thick leaves overhead that prevents light reaching the woodland floor, the ground vegetation is relatively thin on the ground, consisting mainly of low bramble and tree saplings.
Animals and birds are abundant in the woodland, and badgers, deer and birds of prey are known to be in the wider woodland and likely make use of Redbrook Wood to forage for food, or nest and rear their youngling.
If It Were Mine
A combination of manual and machine vegetation control and opening up the canopy to let light in, using the a thinning licence in place, might mean some bluebells or other wildflowers appear in spring.
I would put up bat boxes and owl boxes to try and encourage more wildlife to visit the woodland and perhaps a little hide nearby to enjoy observing any new visitors.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
