Woodland Creation in The Vale of Glamorgan

The UK's ancient forests are irreplaceable and much of what remains is in vulnerable fragments. Many of the species that inhabit ancient woodland are relatively immobile and are disappearing at an alarming rate. Restore UK has helped support the linking and buffering of some very special ancient woodland sites: In The Casehill Wood extension, a few miles to the west of Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan Restore UK helped fund the purchase of 21 hectares of pasture in order to plant 50,000 trees (all of native stock) to link and buffer two separate areas of semi-natural ancient woodland - already owned by the Woodland Trust: Pen-y-Turnpike and Cwm Gorge woods. This is providing exceptional nature conservation value with the site now under the Trust's management plan, which is significantly increasing and enhancing local biodiversity value by creating and maintaining the area as a continuous woodland complex of over 8 hectares.


Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
