DescriptionCoed Cymru is a partnership of organisations dedicated to bringing Welsh broadleaf woodlands into sustainable management. It was founded in 1985 and established as a company limited by guarantee and a charity in 1989. It began as a campaigning body to heighten awareness of native woodlands, particularly among the farming community who own most of these woodlands. In 1986 a network of woodland advisors was established, based in County Council and National Park offices. Four clear roles have emerged for Coed Cymru: As a provider of free and impartial help, advice and training; To promote co-operation between woodland owners, woodland contractors and timber users; To develop hardwood timber products and markets to ensure that broadleaf woodlands have a firm economic base which will ensure their continued management; and To be an advocate for broadleaf woodland in Wales and to act as a catalyst to bring about environmental, economic and social benefits through sustainable woodland management.
