This booklet provides a summary of the collaborative effort between the Dyfi FEI Cluster Group and the local communities of Forge and Machynlleth to develop a transparent woodland management plan for Coed Tŷ Gwyn to meet the needs and interests of all.
The project, which engaged 648 people across both communities, was coordinated by Coetiroedd Dyfi Woodlands and was funded through the Forest
Education Initiative Partnership Fund and Glasu’s Community Resilience Fund.
All participants were made aware of the Dyfi Biosphere, and many became interested in how such community planning could be applied to other woodlands in the Biosphere. The project was a pilot activity for the COBWEB citizen science project.
