Most forestry plantations in Wales are on higher ground and valley sides, and typically comprise varieties of non-native species such as larch, pine or spruce. Some forestry areas, such as Coed-y-Brenin and the Afan Valley have developed into centres for outdoor leisure activities such as trail biking, orienteering, cross-country running etc. Others are developing a dedicated fauna and flora comprising species that might otherwise struggle to breed in the current Welsh landscape – in much the same way that communities of animals and plants adapted to cycles of arable management. Some of the species adapting to our less intensively managed conifer plantations include: the Willow Tit (which is one of the most declining species in Britain), Lesser Redpoll, Siskin, Wood Warbler, Tree Pipit, Redstart, Coal Tit, Goldcrest and Crossbill, which is a conifer specialist.
