Coed Dyfi has great potential as a woodland. It is a manageable size at approximately 6 acres and has the benefit of its own private gated entrance directly off the A487.
A plantation style woodland, with majority ash but also some birch, oak, alder and one or two beech and throughout are hazel, gorse and a smattering of holly which benefit as an understorey.
The woodland is easily accessible on level ground throughout. There are areas of wetland and particularly towards the western edge, due to its siting on the Dyfi Estuary; an increasingly rare habitat that needs to be conserved and worked with, rather than against.
A substantial drainage channel bisects the wood on a south-western - north-eastern axis towards the back third of the woodland. Foot access to the back of the wood could be achieved with a simple bridge and if vehicle access is required for timber extraction or forestry management purposes only, right of access has been granted over the neighbouring woodland's track (for those purposes only).
A railway line runs outside the external western boundary of the larger woodland, the closest station being Dovey Junction, providing convenient transport links.
Ash is the predominant species here, with intermittent birch, alder, some oak and one or two beech, interspersed with occasional conifer. This mix of broadleaf could be further enhanced with supplemental variety of planting, benefitting the future health and strength of the woodland. The woodland was originally planted in a plantation style of straight rows, making it easy to manage, but a more natural appearance could be achieved in time by opening up areas into small clearings or glades and with supplemental planting between the rows.
Also present are hazel, gorse and goat willow which create protective cover and provide forage for wildlife, and are a good understory. The southern boundary, running along the A487, is planted with a mixed hedgerow including hazel and hawthorn. Laying the hedge in spring or autumn, perhaps with supplemental planting would increase the density of the hedge, providing an even better buffer against the road and increased habitat for many species of insects, birds and small mammals as well.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Access is excellent with its own private gated entrance directly off the A487.
There are no public footpaths through Coed Dyfi.
Access will need to be granted occasionally for safety checks and routine maintenance on the gas pipeline which runs under the very western part of Coed Dyfi and the electricity line which runs across the northern corner.
The excellent access and level ground provide great opportunities here for using the woodland for workshop or educational projects.
There is also opportunity here to plant willow or alder for coppicing with a view to producing material for basketry, or coppicing for firewood or charcoal. There are of course numerous other uses for coppiced wood including hurdles, poles, material for fencing, gates and general building or garden products.
The boundaries are marked in royal blue paint on wooden marker stakes and fence posts.
The southern half of the western boundary is fenced and the northern half of the western boundary is marked with marker stakes.
The northern, eastern and southern boundary is fenced.
