Droed y Bryn is situated in a delightful, peaceful location at the foot of the Brecon mountains. Nearby is Cwm Gwdi, a popular starting point to summit Pen y Fan and beyond. The popular tourist town of Brecon is a short 2.5 miles away.
The woodland itself is predominantly replanted Norway spruce, carried out about 25 years ago. With commercial aspirations the wood has also developed with an abundance of broadleaves namely birch at pole stage within the mix. The trees are dense in number and are at thinning stage, presenting the opportunity to produce some timber or firewood.
The excellent internal forest road network and flat terrain promise easy and cost-effective management. The main access track to the wood has recently been upgraded and is now easily negotiated by car. Access to other parts of the wood is provided along an unsurfaced formation to the rear. Access from the minor council road is via a secure locked gate through the wider wood and up to the woodland boundary.
The soil is free draining loam on a clay gley is superb for growing trees and supports vibrant vegetation where the light permits.
Droed y Bryn represents an opportunity to invest in some growing timber and a chance to manage the woodland to your own aspirations whether it be transformation into a native woodland or enhance the timber prospects.
If It Were Mine
The first job would be to cut an access path through the wood, thereby facilitating future management and extraction of woodland produce. In the longer term I would be tempted to steer the woodland toward a mixed broadleaf composition by removing the larger trees and those disadvantaged by the competition.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
