Working in partnership with Llanfair Caereinion Town Council, this project focusses on the restoration of Deri Woods in Llanfair Caereinion, with benefits for the local community, visitors to the wood and wildlife.

About the project

Centred in the Council-owned Deri Woods just outside the village of Llanfair Caereinion, restoration includes coppicing, removing non-native Western Red Cedar and creating more spaces for open woodland habitat.

Working with members of the local community, as well as local schools, youth and scout groups, the project partners are seeking to create a sustainably managed landscape in which wildlife and people will thrive.
