Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A well-located productive commercial conifer forest and natural woodland with timber production, sporting and amenity potential.



The forestry plantation area on Swilebog Woodland is planted in a favourable location for conifer production on fertile agricultural land. Planting was carried out in three phases in 1994, 1999 and 2001 under Woodland Grant Schemes. Rainfall is 750 –1000 mm per annum. The site is gently sloping with a generally easterly aspect between 150m and 360m elevation with the plantation areas between 150m and 260m. The Swilebog road gives good access through the property. There are in addition various access rides and open areas within the woodland. The current stocked area totals 65.05 hectares of which 35% is Spruce and 23% of other conifers. The older plantation areas are approaching thinning

The conifer woodland comprises well stocked stands of mainly Sitka Spruce, European Larch and Scots Pine. The remaining area consists primarily of designed open ground and Native Mixed Broadleaves providing habitat diversification. Broadleaves were planted as part of the design plan and are generally concentrated on woodland margins and linking open ground. There is also a large area of Mixed Broadleaves planted on the higher ground planted in 1980 and now mature.

The open ground provides opportunity for development of sporting activities or for additional planting for which grants are available.
