Burnt Wood

UK»England»Staffordshire»Burnt Wood

98 acres of semi natural ancient woodland.

The reserve covers four separate blocks of deciduous woodland within the Burnt Wood complex - now primarily planted with conifers. Oak is the dominant tree species, with birch, rowan and holly also widespread. The woods were once coppiced to provide fuel for glass making and some of the large old oak coppice stools can still be seen.

The grass snakes can sometimes be seen on the pond at the southern end of the reserve.
