A series of online discussion sessions were held 10-12 March to give people the opportunity to discuss the National Forest for Wales. 

The First Minister opened the three day online event with the announcement of a new demonstrator project to increase the number of exemplar National Forest sites across Wales.  These will be woodlands in addition to those on the Welsh Government’s Woodland Estate which are already capable of demonstrating the National Forest outcomes which will recognise the time, effort and the enthusiasm so many people put into managing our fabulous woodlands.

In addition to this funding will be available to improve woodlands to National Forest standard in the future. This will include funding for new woodland areas.  Further detail will follow over the next few months.

Recordings of the presentations and panel Q&A’s from 10-12 March event will soon be available on the You Tube National Forest for Wales playlist
