Coed Cymru

Description

Coed Cymru began as a campaigning body to heighten awareness of native woodlands, particularly among the farming community who own most of these woodlands. In 1986 a network of woodland advisors was established, based in County Council and National Park offices. The Coed Cymru Central office at Tregynon provides the communication, technical and administrative support necessary to maintain the cohesion of the organisation.

Four clear roles have emerged for Coed Cymru: to be a a provider of free and impartial help, advice and training; to promote co-operation between woodland owners, woodland contractors and timber users; to develop hardwood timber products and markets to ensure that broadleaf woodlands have a firm economic base which will ensure their continued management; and to be an advocate for broadleaf woodland in Wales and to act as a catalyst to bring about environmental, economic and social benefits through sustainable woodland management.

Coed Cymru has also taken an active role in developing new products from Welsh softwood timber including an innovative timber building system called Ty Unnos which produces high standards of energy efficiency from local products.
