Tree planting, Ysbyty Ifan
Booking essential; limited spaces
Tŷ Nant Eidda is an upland farm with its own hefted flock of Welsh Mountain sheep that graze their own cynefin on the Migneint in the summer months. (The Migneint is an area of blanket bog in Conwy county that is internationally important for peat and the amount of carbon stored in it.) Some areas of land at Tŷ Nant Eidda are to be planted with trees near the Eidda river, to help increase the tree cover and diversity of the farm as well as provide more cover for stock.
The tree planting is part of a wider project of the National Trust, who own the farm as part of their Ysbyty Ifan estate. Their 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.
There are over fifty small, traditional farms around the village of Ysbyty Ifan, which itself is rich in history, so you will planting trees in a special part of the country.
