Summary: A small woodland sitting high above the town of Monmouth in the Wye Valley. Mixed woodland of Beech, Birch, Oak and Douglas Fir, with good access and magnificent views.

Additional Information: Wye Wood is an interesting mixture of species, tree sizes and terrain. It is surrounded by other woodland and sits on the side of an east facing slope overlooking the Wye River and just north of the border town of Monmouth. The woodland is accessed from the A40 along a private forest road right up to and then along the western boundary. The woodland area can be broadly divided into two distinct types. The western section at the top of the slope is much more gently sloping, with flatter areas, and has younger Birch trees growing underneath widely spaced Beech and Oak. Inside this area there is an open grassy glade, with vehicular access, that is ideal for picnics and family camping. From this point you have magnificent views over the Wye Valley to the hills beyond (see photo above for view). Some area of the younger Birch would benefit from a degree of thinning, which would not only benefit the remaining trees, but would improve access while producing a very useful supply of firewood. Further down the slope the woodland changes into mature Douglas Fir with lots of younger and semi-mature Beech and Oaks. The ground here is steeper, and falls away right down nearly to the A40 below. The whole forest which includes Wye Wood is classified as Ancient Woodland, indicating that it has had continuous tree cover since the year 1600. The woodland is high in conservation value, full of wildlife and is regularly used by a large local deer population, whose tracks criss-cross the area. This woodland is held on a 999 year lease from 1952, so there is 941 years left to run, and the annual rent is 75p.
