Olygfa o Bren is located at the foot of the Brecon Beacons and this quiet rural location has a flat topography and is serviced with a hard-surfaced track in part, then a firm unsurfaced track that runs along the boundary.
This wood is lightly stocked with mid rotation Norway spruce that have been heavily thinned. The open space created has led to large numbers of self-seeded birch and spruce saplings that are growing rapidly. The wood will now start to change dramatically as it fills the space provided and will soon form a dense woodland again.
The boundary joins agricultural fields and hosts views over open pasture with sheep and cattle grazing in the distance. On a clear day you can just make out the fringes of the delightful market town of Brecon, a popular tourist town welcoming walkers and travellers alike.
The internal boundary of the wood is a ditch with access provided across a small log bridge. The floor is becoming dense with vegetation and small trees, providing a super opportunity to give preferential management to those trees that one wishes to develop into a young woodland. The remaining older spruce could be gradually thinned out providing substantial volumes of firewood for the home.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out the regenerating trees to bring them along more effectively rather than leaving them to their own devices. I would also manage some of the vegetation at the entrance and clear a path into the wood to a nice spot and make a clearing for spending the odd night under the stars or even put up a rain shelter.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
