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.

Nant yr Arian Forest Resource Plan covers a large area of forest to the east of Aberystwyth. It is popular with visitors and locals for its visitor centre and the many recreational activities and events that are catered for in the forest.

Below is a link to the summary of objectives for the plan:
