Woodlands

Approximately 36,400 hectares of the Snowdonia National Park is covered by woodlands. This represents around 17% of the total ground area and are made up of broad-leaved, coniferous and mixed woodlands.

The Snowdonia National Park Authority owns a number of woodlands, which are managed to the highest environmental standards by the Authority's Forestry Section, providing a resource for public enjoyment and education.

The Forestry Section helps to conserve, enhance and expand native broad-leaved woodlands and their biodiversity by providing advice, grant aid and assistance.

It also liaises with the Forestry Commission and the forest industry on felling and restocking programmes, and enhancing forest landscapes.
