Burry Port Woodlands

Burry Port woodlands was planted in the late 1990’s and is now a wildlife rich haven. However, the past was an industrial one and a large part of this coastal area was home to Carmarthen Bay Power Station. The woodland now bridges the gap between a rich industrial past and an environment rich in wildlife.

Areas of natural tree growth were added to by the planting of native trees including birch, alder, hazel and oak. Shrubs were also planted including broom, alder buckthorn and guilder rose. Corsican pine was planted as it does well in this coastal location.

The old ash lagoon from the power station have been turned into wildlife ponds that attract dragonflies and a host of other insect life. Meadows nestle in-between the trees and support many flowers in the summer. Listen out for the hum of bees at the height of summer as they feed on the nectar and pollen. Birds are also attracted to the area to feed on the increased insect life and help to complete the natural nutrient cycle.
