Second stage of woodland work to start at Pontcysyllte

Work has started on the second phase of woodland management at Pontcysyllte.

As part of the Our Picturesque Landscape National Lottery Heritage Funded project in the Dee Valley, woodland management works within the woodlands around the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct are taking place this winter.

Some trees are being removed, following careful consideration, resulting in a more varied age structure benefitting the woodland, wildlife and people as discrete views will be opened across the World Heritage Site.

The work involves coppicing of mature shrub species, selective thinning of tree species and the felling of unstable stems close to pathways.

The second phase of work, which began on December 12, will involve the light thinning of the woodland along the riverside from the aqueduct towards Ty Mawr country park as far as the new antique camera installation and then up to the top path.

Signage will be placed around the area to inform the public that the work is taking place.

Councillor Win Mullen James, Cabinet Lead Member for Local Development and Planning, said: “We thank the public for their patience while this work takes place over the winter. When finished visitors can look forward to more views to enjoy while discovering this picturesque area.”
