Appendix 3 Fact sheet for additional sensitives to Planting
Total area in Wales- 311,621 ha
What the layer shows
Woodland in this instance describes any area of land, in both rural and urban locations, which is greater than 0.5 hectares, is wider than 20m at its narrowest point, and has a wooded canopy across at least 20% of its area. Felled areas of woodland are included in this, unless there has been a permanent change of land-use, or the area has not been re-afforested for more than 10 years.
Impact on a GWC application
As this Glastir scheme supports new woodland creation it is not available for areas of existing woodland.
- Exclude any areas of existing woodland from your plan
The National Forest Inventory 2015 was used to identify existing woodland. Inform Welsh Government via RPW online if you feel an area has been wrongly recorded as existing woodland.
