Tannin Wood is an oak plantation on free draining soils in the middle of a wider area, locally called Bella Wood. Designated as an Ancient Woodland, this indicates tree cover since the 1600s. Whilst the oaks were planted around 50 years ago, there are a few plant species which generally only grow in well established woodland, such as bluebells, ramsons, wood anemone, yellow archangel and primrose.
The oak trees are growing very well, as a result of good management over the years leading to tall and straight stems with minimal side branching. In years to come, these trees will form high quality timber or magnificent trees with high levels of habitat. Dotted throughout the woodland are some hazel trees, the occasional ash and sycamore too.
The undergrowth is kept in relative check by the thick overhead canopy of leaves but there is a mixture of wildflowers, wild grasses, moss species and bramble. Spring is perhaps the most spectacular of seasons due to the bluebells that cover the ground in a sea of colour.
Animals and birds are abundant in the woodland. Badgers, deer and birds of prey are known to be in the wider woodland and likely make use of Tannin Wood to forage for food, or nest and rear their youngling.
If It Were Mine
The oaks need little management for a number of years but I might encourage some of the other species to flourish. Flailing or strimming of the bramble should help to encourage the wildflowers and also create nice open areas to potentially pitch a tent or sit and enjoy the woodland.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
