Tree planting, Cwm Penmachno
Booking essential; limited spaces
Ysgwyfraith is a small farm in Cwm Penmachno, around 2 miles from the A5. The farm has an area of ffridd, part of which is being planted with trees to increase the cover of woodland. The farm already has some fantastic oaks and good populations of spotted fly catcher are seen here in the spring.
The tree planting is part of a wider project of the National Trust, who own the farm and surrounding area. The Upper Conwy Catchment project aims to reduce flooding downstream – a major problem in Conwy county – and improve the health of the Conwy river and its tributaries. There have already been signs of success. Visit their website to learn more.
The trees we plant at Ysgwyfraith will increase the habitat for insects and birds and capture carbon, as well as benefiting the streams and river.
We have clear protocols and risk assessments for coronavirus to allow us to carry out practical outdoor work as safely as possible. If you would like more information on these please get in touch. To ensure social distancing is possible at all times, the number of volunteers for this day is strictly limited. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
