Happy International Day of Forests

Today (21 March 2013) marks the first ever United Nations International Day of Forests, a day commemorating the contribution and value of forests and forestry to the community.

Forests cover one third of the planet’s land mass, sustaining a variety of animal and plant life, but deforestation and disease pose an ever-greater threat both at home and abroad. According to The Woodland Trust, a total of 1043 UK woods have been under threat from development over the last ten years. Penllergare was one of these.
