Teenage spruce trees Seen from the vehicle turning area by the main forestry road for the north-western part of this plantation. Behind the camera is a large area of mature forest which must be due for felling in the next few years.
The Tywi Forest
The Tywi Forest is a very extensive area of coniferous plantation mainly established in the 1960s over what had been, in the main, open moorland. Abandoned post-Medieval settlements and Bronze Age monuments reveal that this landscape was more intensively populated and used in the past. With many of the trees being well over forty years old, felling is in progress in many parts of the forest, including here, hence the good condition of many of the stony forestry roads. Young trees are also becoming well established in many of the cleared areas.
