    Wales is one of the least wooded countries in Europe. Woodlands make up just 14 per cent of the landscape and less than half of these are native, or broadleaved.

    Ancient woodland is irreplaceable and therefore especially valuable and important. Some ancient woods may even date back to the original wildwood that covered much of Wales following the last Ice Age.

    Ancient woodland makes up less than 5 per cent of the land area of Wales. However, the Welsh Government’s Planning Policy makes it clear that ancient woodland should be protected from development that would result in significant damage.

    The Welsh Government has adopted an ambitious target to support the creation of 2,000 hectares of new woodland a year between now and 2030. We are keen to help deliver this.

    We own over 100 woods in Wales covering an area of 2,897 hectares (7,155 acres). Almost all of these are available for the public to visit at any time and for free.
