  • "Bwlch Nant Yr Arian near Aberystwyth has had the same problem but although the site has been virtually clear felled, the walks, bike trails and red kite feeding station are all now fully operating again and the excellent visitor centre and cafe to my knowledge never closed during the tree harvesting work.
    Anyone who has seen the tree harvesting and haulage machines used nowadays would know immediately why the working areas have to be closed to public access, that is what the statement says if you read it properly, it clearly states that the visitor centre etc will remain open.
    Lets hope the areas are replanted with native species to replaced the diseased larch and conifers"

WE brought the news yesterday that the future of Cwmcarn Forest Drive is uncertain due to large-scale tree-felling which will begin in November.

Are you one of the hundreds of thousands of people who use Gwent's biggest tourist attraction? Are you concerned that it could close in November, never to re-open again?

If you are, our reporter Emma Mackintosh would like to speak to you.
