Description

The entrance to Stag Wood is found at the end of a newly restored stone track suitable for most family vehicles.

The late afternoon sun filters through the well spaced trees and cascades onto the forest floor. The sunlight here has encouraged the growth of a number of different species of ferns and these give good cover in the summer months. A number of larger magnificent mature oaks mark the western end of the woodland.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.

Trees

The woodland is filled with young silver birch trees. These trees are not only beautiful all year round but are the perfect wood source for anyone with a log burner or open fire. In Scandinavia silver birch is known as the queen of the forest. A richly deserved reputation as it grows tall and reasonably quickly. The timber is hard, in fact so hard in the second world war Mosquito fighter plane fuselages were made of birch plywood. Mature oaks grow along the western boundary.

Wildlife

The woodland is a haven to an abundance of wildlife, including badgers, foxes and owls but of note are the various species of deer seen in the area. Muntjac, roe and fallow deer as well as the most impressive of all, the red deer which is the UK's largest deer. Males have large, branching antlers, increasing in size as they get older. During the autumnal breeding season, known as the 'rut' males bellow to proclaim their territory and will fight over the females, sometimes injuring each other with their sharp antlers. A single calf is usually born the following spring.

Features

A very gently sloping woodland with a thick bracken understory which offers both cover and privacy.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The woodland is accessed via a newly repaired stone track. The track meanders through a larger area of private woodland before terminating at Stag Wood. A footpath borders the southern boundary and the woodland has a number of small deer racks which is a term used to describe regularly used tracks made by deer. With very little work these racks can be enlarged to make internal footpaths for the owner of this delightful wood..

Activities

An ideal woodland for family forestry as the size of the trees are relatively easy to manage.

Provides a sustainable wood source as well as a perfect wildlife haven and retreat.
