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.

Eryri Forest Resource Plan covers the woodland areas that surround the Snowdon Mountain Range and falls close to the villages of Waenfawr, Beddgelert, Nantmor and Nant Gwynant. The woodlands cover a great change in landscapes and uses, from the high productive forests in Beddgelert to the Ancient Woodland sites in Dolfiog.
