Furious locals have warned the purchase of Frongoch Farm in the village of Cwrt-y-Cadno, Carmarthenshire by investment firm Foresight Group, who plan to re-wild the area, will “destroy” the local environment and the scenery as well as tear up years of farming history.
One resident, Sheila Davies, told Sky News that the purchase is a disaster for local people.
She said: “Those fields, that is generations of hard work.
“To see it destroyed just for an investment company to be able to plant to trees.”
The emotional resident added how the plans are “incredibly upsetting” for her and other locals.
Another resident, John Llewellyn, stressed locals are not opposed to efforts to increase biodiversity.
But he was adamant the current plans are ill fit for purpose and will damage the local ecosystem.
He said: “Trees are a good thing, and we want to promote tree growth.
“What we are looking at is the wrong trees for ecological and environmental purposes.”
