Forestry road in Coed Nant-yr-hwch, Powys
Looking south-east along this meandering forestry road. Coed Nantyrhwch is part of the extensive Tywi forest, begun in the 1960s. Trees to the right have been felled and some replanting has taken place; those to the left 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.
