Vixen Wood occupies level and gently sloping terrain on the west side of a larger woodland near the River Irfon in the pastoral heart of rural Powys. The market town of Builth Wells is four miles to the east and Llandovery is about ½ an hour to the southwest.
The heart of the wood is dominated by strong-growing spruce (mostly Norway) which is on the cusp of production. To the north and west, the conifers are fringed with a generous belt of broadleaves – principally ash and hazel plus the occasional birch. A few scattered mature oaks complete the picture.
The terrain is smooth and gently sloping which should make for easy management, while the adjacent track facilitates the ready extraction of woodland produce. This links with a well-found farm track that connects the wood with the public road. There is a good sized spur for ‘in-wood’ parking on the east side of the wood.
Vixen Wood offers a delightful mix of commercial and amenity interest set amidst glorious scenery.
If It Were Mine
I’d release the large old oaks by halo thinning the conifers adjacent, and then continue the thinning programme into the main stands of spruce. I’d also consider coppicing the smaller hazel stools. A small clearing and bench among the broadleaves on the northwest side would make a delightful spot for recuperation!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
