Forestry road in Coed Nantyrhwch, Powys
Looking north from the forestry road junction. This is the way heavy timber lorries will find a way onto the public road system, and via a steep descent into the Tywi valley, a way southwards avoiding the steepest and most tortuous routes. Coed Nantyrhwch is part of the extensive Tywi forest, begun in the 1960s. Trees to the left have been felled and some replanting has taken place; those to the right must be scheduled for clearance before very long.

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.
