Royal Welsh Show Success
Posted on Thursday, September 6, 2018
Since 2009 FW Thorpe Plc has planted over 149,00 trees on 215 acres in Monmouthshire. The ambitious carbon offsetting scheme is accredited to the Woodland Carbon Code and has now been recognised at the prestigious woodland awards held at The Royal Welsh Show. Twenty two estates were judged throughout South Wales with the FW Thorpe woodland (Cwm Fagor) winning three awards:
The Milford Silver Medal for Best Broadleaf entry in Stand classes A,B and C
Best Managed Woodland 51-200 hectares – Silver
Broadleaf planting or restocking under 10 years old – Gold
Acknowledging the hard work of the silviculturalist, the judges praised the quality and health of the woodland and commented on the overall conservation impact including the abundance of wild flowers, butterflies and birds.
