Woodland Conservation and Woodfuel (past group)

Fancy looking after local woodlands and getting free woodfuel?

Read an account of the group’s expedition to Carmel Nature Reserve.The Tywi Woodland Group aimed to encourage and facilitate sustainable management of woodland and tree corridors, for education and enjoyment, conservation and woodland resource utilization; to improve knowledge and practical skills of woodland crafts and techniques, and also to gain a greater understanding of woodland ecology.

The skills and expertise of The Green Valleys CIC and Keep Wales Tidy helped to set up this group.

Many local woodlands are now in need of care and attention. Bringing woodlands back into sustainable management improves the quality of the habitat for wildlife while creating a local supply of renewable fuel and materials.

We met at a woodland between Llangadog and Myddfai each month for a working party.

There were opportunities to carry out wildlife and site surveys and study the varied woodland ecology.
