YFC Woodland Partnership with Natural Resourse Wales
Members from Brecknock Young Farmers’ Clubs (YFC) were out planting oak trees on Friday 23rd March 2018, creating a YFC woodland in partnership with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to celebrate Wales YFC 80th anniversary.
It is part of a mixed deciduous woodland which is located along the Taff Trail in Talybont Forest.
The oak saplings were donated by NRW, Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia National Park Authorities, together with Tilhill Forestry. Michael Cresswell, Land Management Officer for NRW, said “Bringing the young farmers of the future out in to the forest to participate in planting these trees will give them the opportunity to increase their understanding of what happens during forest management, which will hopefully create more joined up land management in future generations.” “This joined-up approach to managing our natural resources to create a healthier and more resilient environment is a fitting tribute to the largest rural youth organisation in Wales.”
