Young Wood community woodland is a 100 acre swathe of luxurious forest, set within the Forestry Commission’s wider 1,000 hectare Neroche Forest estate.  Young Wood offers a microcosm of the wider forest, with a diverse mixture of mature oak and ash woodland with gnarled old field maples, rare wild service trees, patches of hazel coppice, a wild stream valley, beech and pine plantation, and areas of spruce and hemlock.  It supports a wide variety of plants and animals, including butterfly orchids and twayblades, and nearly 100 different species of butterfly and moth.
