GAG News 5 January 2016
2016 sees the 10th anniversary of GAG
A Town Tree Trail is being planned to mark both this occasion and the success of Coed Aber. Other events are under discussion and will be posted on the GAG Facebook.
Barcham Trees: This nursery supplied trees for Coed Aber and will be sending a representative to Aberystwyth to consider local conditions and discuss replacements for the trees that have died along the Park and Ride section.
“Green Aberystwyth”. Cllr Alun Williams gave an excellent talk entitled “Green Aberystwyth” at a recent S and WW Wildlife Trust meeting. Alun highlighted the activities of local voluntary bodies such as GAG , giving GAG good publicity with reference to its ongoing street tree concerns, and management plans for public green spaces.
Moth Survey (2015) of the Aberystwyth Municipal Cemetery. GAG carried out this survey with the help of members of the Ceredigion Moth Group. This is a follow up to the Cemetery Management Plan, written by GAG and adopted by Ceredigion CCC. It gives a base line reference with the intention of demonstrating the benefits of the new management regime to wildlife and so supporting CCC action.

Cambridge Terrace: a compromise has been reached with a plan for 2 of the White Poplars to be felled. Trees are to be planted around the area of the old Bowling Green/labyrinth as compensation and to improve this area.
School trees: a recent check on the saplings GAG planted in school grounds many years ago revealed some surviving trees to have grown to at least 35 ft. Many have also been lost due to various causes and robust strimmer guards are urgently needed. GAG is intending to offer to put these in place.
Bryophtyes list. We are grateful to Sue Rubinstein (formerly of Pen-y-Graig) for contributing a useful list of mosses and liverworts in the Parc Natur Penglais area.
