Cwrt and Brynteg Forest Resource Plan

Closed 21 Aug 2020

Opened 24 Jul 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.

Cwrt and Brynteg Forest Resource Plan covers two forests located south of Trawsfynydd in Snowdonia National Park. Cwrt forest is a larger plantation forest, frequently visited by walkers, who cross the forest to access the Rhinog mountains to the west. Brynteg forest is a smaller forest, closer to Trawsfynydd, which has been restored to native woodland and open habitats.
