Harvesting operations will shortly start around the Brynffo car park area and beyond as per the attached map. This will be standard thinning of spruce, and clearance of larch.
We have identified that there are larch trees affected (some already dead) by the disease Phytophthora ramorum in this area, and in line with disease control orders we will be felling all larch trees whether they show symptoms or not.
It’s a shame but this felling will rather alter the landscape and feel of the car park. However it will give us the opportunity of planting a wider range of species, particularly broadleaves, once the infected trees have been removed.
