Woodland conservation and woodfuel

Fancy looking after local woodlands and getting free woodfuel?

Woodland conservation group in action in a wood

Read an account of the group’s expedition to Carmel Nature Reserve.The Tywi Woodland Group aims 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.

Would you like to meet some new people and enjoy a few hours each month doing exercise at your own pace in a peaceful woodland surrounding? Perhaps this is the perfect antidote to your busy life. Time to breathe some fresh air, watch the river gently meandering by and enjoy the sights and sounds of the woodland wildlife.   We meet at a woodland between Llangadog and Myddfai each month for a working party.

Would you like to enjoy membership of the group in other ways?  There are opportunities to carry out wildlife and site surveys and study the varied woodland ecology.  Perhaps you have time or skills to help with promoting and expanding the group?

If any of this appeals  to you, then the Tywi Woodland Group could be just what you are looking for.
