I will find out this week if our poult supplier has been lying to us! The birds are due this weekend and we normally collect a ton of grower pellets in the days before but getting a reply from him since he cut our order back hasn’t been easy!
We think that even if we get no poults we could still feed the wild birds and have three or four walked up days! We wouldn’t be able to dog in the ground enough for more than one drive and that one seems to attract wild partridges anyway.
 
Value depends on what timber is on there, values are high currently ,ask your local land agent or woodland specialists such as Tilhill, also Savills or Knight Frank, ask the owner if they`d sell or lease ,if they are unapproachable get the land agent to approach them, nothing ventured nothing gained.
I can recommend Tilhill, we have used them before for thinning and clear fell work , always done well with them on pricing of standing timber.
In this instance I would use an agent, as an interested party with a boundary add a bit to the value, unless of course the owner is unaware, cough! cough!

I'll try them first then cheers

As the person that owns the land to the south and east is only interested in farming every square inch of giant flat arable fields and the chap that owns the field to the west and north of the wood is about 90 and leases his land out for hay, I'm hoping that no one is interested in 10 acres of bracken infested wonky pines

Any idea of its wildlife population ?
 
"Amenity woodland" (No use for anything ) for over £10k p/acre , that is entertaining to read, I also believe they often retain the shooting rights on a lot of the plots they sell so you never really own it.
I looked at buying through them some years ago. The price and restrictions put me off looking any further as I’d have been paying to put my name and money into something barely usable.

From memory there are tax write-offs and some grants for managing woodland that would make it work for some, but given the amount of time their signs stay up it doesn’t look like there are many of those about.

I often look at what is for sale locally, as you say "entertaining to read" aimed more at the good lifers / at one with natureites
 
Albeit second hand gen but a mate worked down south with "unprofitable" woods then went to Scotland then moved back south with Scottish teams who couldn't believe their luck at logging a field less than 45 degrees in pissing rain and surrounded by midges.

What are the trees?
