Tarecroft Wood is a rich mosaic of mixed coppice with oak and ash standards covering an area of 6.1 Hectares. The southern area has recently been coppiced. The northern area has not been coppiced for some time and is very dark in areas with older coppice stools splitting. The north-south path has become ill-defined especially towards the north. There is a dry pond in the north-west corner and a dell towards the southern end. The geology of the site is Boulder Clay over Kesgrave sand and gravel formations. The woodland soils are complex but are generally heavy and poorly drained.
