Located at the foot of the Brecon Beacons, Parsons Copse is a conifer wood a few minutes’ drive from the delightful market town of Brecon. Approach to this woodland is along quiet county lanes and its setting enjoys stunning views of the surroundings at the foot of the hills.
From the council road access is through a wider wooded area. There is a recently stoned track for about three quarters of the way, which then joins an unsurfaced formation leading to inside the woodland 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 timber and fencing grade produce.
Towards the east boundary is a dew pond which fills in all but the driest of weather, attracting ducks and moorhens.
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 from thrush, blue tits, warbler and nightingale.
Parsons Copse would make an excellent woodland improvement project with the opportunity to enhance the commercial planting with native woodland shelter and diverse green habitats.
If It Were Mine
There are a few windblown trees that I would tidy up first. Then I would thin out a few of the trees to bring the crop on to maturity in another 15 years. I would also create a place for camping by the pond to spending the odd night under the stars.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
