Forestry management may not seem likely as a major topic for controversy but if you live in the countryside of NE Wales it can be a subject about which you feel passionate, like Ally who writes from rural Corwen, Denbighshire: "You're in the heart of some of the most beautiful countryside in Wales including Snowdonia. It's just a shame someone made the ridiculous decision of cutting down all the forestry around Pen y Pigyn and making the whole mountain look like a wasteland - so much for promoting local walks."

On another occasion, people thought aliens had landed when foresters cut bizarre shapes into the heather as part of their countryside management techniques at Moel Famau, near Mold.

But there has been praise for some other areas. Mountain bikers are apparently raving about a new purpose-built centre in Llandegla Forest, according to Andy.
