Bryn Pren is a conifer wood located at the foot of the Brecons only a few minutes’ drive from the delightful town of the same name. This quiet rural location is serviced by narrow country lanes and set amongst an agricultural landscape. The wood is positioned on flat ground and has wonderful views overlooking the valley leading to Brecon itself. Access to the wood from the council road is through a wider wooded area. There is a recently stoned track for about a third of the way, which then joins an unsurfaced formation leading to inside the boundary.
The wood itself is was replanted with Norway spruce about 25 years ago. These trees are dense in number and are at first thinning stage, presenting an immediate revenue opportunity for fencing grade produce.
Towards the southern edge is a stream that flows in all but the driest of weather. The riparian area along the stream is flush with broadleaves, notably rowan, birch, alder and willow with the occasional oak. They are of a similar age to the spruce and cutting a few trees throughout will produce some useful firewood and allow those remaining to grow further.
The forest floor is fairly unencumbered due to the density of the trees but where there is open space there is a profusion of self-seeded trees, ferns and brambles. The wood is alive with the sounds of bird chorus form thrush, blue tits, warbler and nightingale.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out the trees to bring the crop on to maturity in another 15 years. I would also create a clearing for camping or build a tree house for spending the odd night under the stars. I would also manage some of the vegetation at the entrance and clear a path into the wood to a nice spot by the stream.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
