Pontcysyllte Woodland Work
As part of the Our Picturesque Landscape National Lottery Heritage Funded project in the Dee Valley, we will be starting some woodland management works within the woodlands around the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct this winter.
Some of the trees will be removed, following careful consideration, resulting in a more varied age structure benefitting the woodland, wildlife and people as discrete views will be opened across the World Heritage Site. The work involves coppicing of mature shrub species, selective thinning of tree species and the felling of unstable stems close to pathways.
This work has been agreed with the Community Councils, Canal and Rivers Trust and Natural Resources Wales. For further information regarding the way we manage our woodlands, click here.
This will be the first phase of ongoing management of the woodland at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and is a key part of the Our Picturesque Landscape conservation objectives. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
