Brek Wood 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 accessed 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 from the council road is through a secure gate and along a hard surfaced track (suitable for a car at all times of the year) which passes through a wider wooded area and on to Brek Wood.
The wood itself is was replanted with Norway spruce about 25 years ago. These trees are dense in number and will one day present an opportunity to harvest and produce some timber. Amongst the spruce and around the fringes are birch and rowan, providing stunning greens in spring and dappled shade in summer. 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.
A stream runs through the wood, feeding into a large pond, and with an area to park the car, makes a delightful place from which to enjoy the surroundings.
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.
Looking out from the wood the view is of pasture fields and with hardly another soul around Brek Wood makes an ideal get away from the hustle and bustle and is perfect for the hobby forester.
If It Were Mine
Initially I would manage some of the vegetation at the entrance and clear a path into the wood to a nice spot by the stream. I would thin out the trees to bring the crop on to maturity in another 10 years. I would also create a clearing for camping or build a tree house for spending the odd night under the stars.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
