Aberhirnant and Llangower Forest Resource Plan

Closes 18 Dec 2020

Opened 21 Nov 2020

Overview

Natural Resources Wales is responsible for the sustainable management of the publicly owned woodlands and forests of Wales. They are managed for the benefit and well-being of the people who visit them and depend on them for their livelihood. This responsibility includes improving their biodiversity and long-term resilience to climate change so that future generations will also be able to enjoy the benefits they provide. Every ten years Natural Resources Wales reviews the long-term management plans for each forest area. These are compiled in a new Forest Resource Plan.

Aberhirnant and Llangower Forest Resource Plan covers a large area of forest to the south east of Bala. It is mainly made up of productive conifer crops and there is a small picnic site located in the Hirnant Valley.
