Cefni, Pentraeth, Coed Nant and Cadw Forest Resource Plan

Closes 22 Dec 2021

Opened 10 Nov 2021

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.

Public Drop In sessions to discuss all of the plans will be held as follows:

Canolfan Ebeneser, Bridge Street, Llangefni LL77 7PN, on Tuesday the 30th of November 1pm - 6pm.

Pentraeth Memorial Hall, on Wednesday 1st of December,1pm to 6pm.

This Forest Resource Plan encompases 4 woodland areas on the central and eastern side of the Isle of Anglesey. 

Cefni- Is the the most westerly area and sits to the north west of the town of Llangefni, it is made up of 77.6Ha of predominatly productive woodland that surrounds the Cefni Reservoir. 

Pentraeth - Is the largest of the blocks at 244.5Ha and is predominatly a mixture of Pine and Spruce however, a large area of broadleaf provides a valuable habitat towards the western side of the woods. The forest overlooks Red Wharf Bay and is close to the Welsh costal path it is therefore very prominent from several recreational and touristic areas. The woodland and the pine inparticular is important habitat for Red Squirrels, butterflies and a wide range of bird species. 

Coed Cadw & Nant - this area only comprises of 20Ha towards the far east of the Isle of Anglesey and just north of Beaumaris Town. This area is a mixture of restored and planted ancient woodland.

The map below shows the 4 different woodlands.

Summary of the main changes that will occur in the forest:

  • Clear felling of larch due to Phytophthora ramorum, unfortunatly due to a statutory plant health notice, extensive clearfelling of larch will happen in Cefni by March 2022.
  • More use of Continuous Cover Forestry methods to manage productive coupes. 
  • Restoration of Ancient Woodland Sites in particular those at Coed Nant & Cadw.
