Woodlands And You

Woodlands and You

Ceinws Camp Community Group, Affordable Housing Project. Coed y Mynydd

Woodlands have huge potential to benefit communities – they can be used for training and enterprise ventures, health and well-being initiatives, arts and community regeneration programmes. The tree tops are the limit!

Both the Welsh Government and Forestry Commission Wales want communities and social enterprises get the greatest possible benefit from the Woodland Estate. 'Woodlands and You' aims to open the way for more people than ever to make the most of this resource.
