Interreg IIIC - project part-financed by the European Union Forestry Commission Wales - Comisiwn Coedwigaeth Cymru

What is it about?

Forestry is important to the future of rural Europe. Sharing information, best practice and new ideas across five member states can only help ensure a dynamic future for an industry which can provide so many diverse opportunities for job and wealth creation.

Timber production, and adding value to that timber within rural communities is of vital importance, but energy from wood fuel, protection of the environment and the increasing use of woodlands for recreation are already giving us new ways of providing rural areas with valuable new income.

Wales is proud to have played a lead role, sharing the skills and knowledge that have been built up by Welsh foresters over the years with our partners in Europe.
