Coed yr Arth is a delightful woodland of mixed broadleaf and Norway spruce. A crop of conifer was felled around 2005, and the site was replanted with oak, ash, birch and cherry; Norway spruce, however, has naturally regenerated and is growing strong to compete with the planted broadleaves alongside the vigorously growing birch.
Although the majority of the trees on site are relatively young and standing at about 20 feet, some more mature specimens, mainly beech, can be found defining the woodland edge from the fields beyond.
The woodland is effectively flat but has very minor undulations, the soils underfoot are quite free draining in most parts but a few of the lower areas would be ideal for a dew pond or two, .This would create a lovely feature within the woodland and would also increase the level of biodiversity and possibly attract wildlife to the area. Removing a few trees to create these would result in an opening in the canopy overhead, enabling sunlight to hit the floor and the possibility that a variety of new flora would flourish.
An upgraded track allows year-round access to the woodland; just off here is a stoned area that could be used to park a car or as a handy space to store and dry some firewood.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out the silver birch, making room for the trees of good form to continue their growth unchecked. I might perhaps plant some more oak or cherry in the gaps to increase the diversity and protect them with tree guards for the first few years.
If I had access to a digger, I might also dig a little dew pond in some of the lower parts of the woodland, creating a little clearing around this would also allow sunlight to reach the ground and in the springtime, bluebells and other wildflowers would likely pop up and be a great feature.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
