Established as a charity in 1989, Coed Cymru is a group of organisations aiming to ensure that Welsh broadleaf woodlands are managed sustainably. Coed Cymru provides advice and help with the sustainable usage of woodland resources and woodland management, from the planting and growth of new trees to the end product such as timber products. Coed Cymru has helped initiate more than 7000 tree planting and woodland management projects, and convert over 400 businesses to Welsh timber. This has been achieved through the organisation's active promotion of local timber and woodland management in order to ensure the economic well-being of the industry and woodlands.
Coed Cymru has also created a variety of products using small diameter hardwoods that have been a success commercially, as well as using small pieces of timber to create windows, therefore reducing waste. Currently, Coed Cymru has two major projects underway for the Rural Development Plan for Wales. The first is Powys Endgrain Project which aims to develop endgrain flooring and add value to Welsh Timber. The second project focuses on the Welsh timber supply chain and improving links within the system.
