Description

Juniper Wood is part of a wider area known as Bowers Grove, situated two miles west of the village of Four Marks in rural Hampshire. Access is through a locked gate and along a track.  

Located over predominantly level chalk and flint soils, the lofty canopy comprises a mix of broadleaves that include oak standards, beech, ash, cherry, birch and sycamore. The occasional Scots pine and larch add a coniferous element to the wood. Within the shrub layer below you will discover hawthorn, holly, prolific regeneration of ash, beech and sycamore, along with lush hazel coppice - a useful material for bushcraft or gardening applications. A new custodian could consider removing a larger tree or two for fuel, making use of the Forestry Commission felling licence currently in place. The woodland is designated as a Plantation on an Ancient Woodland site (PAWS), the swathes of bluebells in the warmer months are one such indicator of this. Other pollinators adding to the colour pallette on the ground include wood anemones, climbing honeysuckle, dog’s mercury and herb-Robert.

In and amongst the stems there are occasional grassy spots which would make delightful camping areas if strimmed. A hammock or bench might be nice near the northwest boundary to take advantage of the rural views.   A keen ear may hear the occasional ‘toot’ of a steam engine from the nearby heritage Watercress Line.

Woodland mammals include muntjac, roe and fallow deer, yellow-necked mouse, badger, hare and fox. Feathered visitors such as greenfinch, treecreeper, woodpecker, owl and numerous friendly songbirds have been seen and heard in this peaceful location.


If It Were Mine

There is a lovely private feel to this woodland, so camping trips would definitely take place during warmer months. A keen hobby forester might have a go at charcoal making - there is plenty of hazel to facilitate this. Some squirrel control would allow the younger trees to become more established. A stem or two of ash would make great fuel of the hearth.

Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
