Trees are life-giving. They offer shelter, habitats, food and building materials for living creatures. Small woods can also be a place for people to grow and flourish too.
Coed Lleol connects people and nature the woodland way. We help individuals and woodlands in Wales to flourish and grow through woodland activities, events and training in their local areas. Since 2010, we have successfully run health and wellbeing activities in woodlands through our Actif Woods Wales programme.
Coed Lleol is Small Woods Association in Wales, a national charity and company limited by guarantee. Small Woods was formed in 1988 as the national organisation for small woodlands, it has a significant track record in managing Social Forestry projects, as well as projects to promote sustainable management of small woodlands for social, environmental and economic benefit
Coed Lleol began in 2002 and has over 15 years of experience running community woodland events. We established a support network for community woodland groups which now runs independently as Llais Y Goedwig.
Since 2010, we have been successfully running health and wellbeing activities through our Actif Woods Wales programme. Today this programme has grown from strength to strength with groups in nine areas of Wales.
