LOT 1: HOBLEY FURZE
13.92 hectares / 34.40 acres
Hobley Furze is a sensibly sized predominantly
broadleaved woodland. The underlying land is relatively
level and soils are ideal for the growth of native
broadleaves and other non-native species according to an
owner's objectives.
Current crops are all either mature or approaching maturity
and with further thinning the main crop of oak and ash
trees could be left to mature and improve ready for harvest
or further thinning. Options for the future management
of the woodland are varied. A new owner may choose to
remove the poplar which is present in some parts of the
wood by clearfelling, or be more sensitive with a
continuous cover management system aimed at
regenerating the woodland through small coupe selective
felling.
Access for harvesting is easy through the gate at point A
on to an unmade track leading onto the woodland's ride
system. This is a series of unmade rides which gives good
access to the majority of the woodland. A new owner may
wish to stone a proportion of these rides to provide year
round access.

LOT 2: COTTONS FURZE
11.20 hectares / 27.67 acres
Slightly smaller than Hobley Furze, this is a stand-alone
woodland which has not been managed for a number of years.
As a result the woodland is packed with mature timber ready
for immediate harvest subject to felling permission from the
Forestry commission.
The woodland contains a mixture of broadleaved species
including poplar, oak, ash and sycamore. There is also the
odd Douglas fir tree. As with Hobley Furze, a new owner has
real scope to transform this woodland according to his or her
objectives of management.
Access is easy from a gate at point B shown on the sale plan.
This wood also has good road frontage to the minor roads
which form the northern and western boundaries.
