Woodland Creation at Tyn Y Mynydd

Closed 21 Jun 2022

Opened 24 May 2022


We’re seeking your views to help shape the design for a new woodland at Tyn Y Mynydd,  Ffordd Penmynydd on Anglesey.

The land was brought by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) earlier this year, as part of a wider project to increase woodland cover on the Welsh Government Woodland Estate and contribute towards tackling the climate and nature emergencies.

The site will be planted with a mixture of broadleaf tree species to ensure the new woodland is diverse and resilient to the impacts of pests, diseases, and climate change.

The new woodland will form part of The Queen’s Green Canopy tree planting initiative with planting set to commence in the Autumn of this year. 

What are we consulting on?

We want to engage with our neighbours, local communities and our partners to plan and design the woodland, shaping it in to a safe and accessible space, that local residents and visitors will be able to enjoy for years to come.

The consultation will also ensure any potential impacts on the surrounding area are considered and offer the opportunity for people to put forwards ideas on how they can be involved with the planning and ongoing management of the new woodland.

Woodland Creation

Woodlands deliver a wide range of benefits – from helping us tackle climate change by locking up carbon, to providing valuable habitats for plants and wildlife, providing outdoor recreational spaces for people to enjoy, slowing flood water and helping reduce water pollution, generating employment and supporting rural livelihoods through their aftercare and active management.

The creation of this woodland is part of our wider Woodland Creation Programme, which has been established to contribute to new woodland creation and tree planting in Wales, to support efforts to tackle the climate and nature emergency.

As with all woodland on the Welsh Government Woodland Estate it will provide a public resource with open access and be managed to meet the UK Forestry Standard and UK Woodland Assurance Standard.

Why your views matter

Take part in our short consultation and share your feedback with us on the plans for the site and let us know how you might like to be involved in future.
