Natural Resources Wales (NRW) have confirmed that work to remove diseased larch trees from Fforest Fawr will begin in September 2018. They have arranged a drop in session for the public to view plans and ask NRW staff questions.
The session is from 2-8pm on Tuesday 17th July in the village hall.

Natural Resources Wales state on their website, “The work is likely to continue through to 2021. During this time, there will be some disruption to footpaths, mountain bike trails and bridleways. All closures and diversions will be clearly signposted, and published on this page and through our social media channels.
“The work is being planned in two phases, so we can always keep areas of the forest open for people to enjoy, and so we can minimise the impact on protected species and local wildlife.”
In September we’ll start removing the diseased Larch trees from Fforest Fawr, Tongwynlais. You can find out more about the plans, and ask any questions to the team at a drop in session next week https://t.co/x6gcx688vk pic.twitter.com/vu2EtTpDqF
