Loki Wood is a wonderfully secluded mature mixed area of natural woodland. It is filled with mature trees which are well spaced with plenty of small glades.
Access is via an excellent stone track suitable for most vehicles. On arriving at Loki Wood you feel a sense of calm that comes from being surrounded by nature. The woodland has a field to the south which ensures the woodland is light and therefore extremely lush. Whilst the other boundaries are bordered by areas of privately owned woodland.
From the entrance an old ride system divides the woodland into two easily manageable areas. A variety of trees from ash, poplar sycamore and oak tower over an understory of hazel and blackthorn. Some large cherry trees are found near the field and a couple of Scots pines mark the eastern boundary.
In some places bramble bushes give excellent ground cover for muntjac deer. One will often bark at you before bounding off into another part of the woodland. A herd of fallow deer frequent the larger area of woodland of which Loki Wood forms part. Other wildlife often seen include foxes and badgers whilst above in the canopy it is home to owls, buzzards and woodpeckers to name but a few.
For those that enjoy actively managing their woodland some of the ash trees would be ideal for a thinning over the next few years providing a good supply of firewood. Additionally the established hazel stands could be coppiced which will provide a source of material for green woodcraft.
Should the owner desire the established ride could be widened to create a small glade, this would then create an ideal camping area hidden away within the woodland. Alternatively for those who prefer a more laid back approach simply sit back and relax and let nature take care of the woodland.
Suffolk was the heartland of the English Saxons and Loki Wood is named after the Saxon god Loki. Loki is the Norse God of mischief . At one time he was also known as being the God of fire. Although Loki is the son of a frost giant, he lives with the gods on Asgard because he tricked Odin to becoming his blood brother
The woodland is only five miles north from the town of Ipswich and a short distance from both the A12 and A14 however feels very rural and offers owners a perfect countryside retreat.
