  1. I like how the title is worded because it made me believe for the shortest of moments that the entire country will be turned into the national forest.

  2. Hopefully they’ll not use this for conifer farms as they have in the past, native and diverse forests are what’s needed.

  3. That might make it harder to walk a straight line across

  4. As someone who lives in Wales I find the first paragraph very cringy.

    Also, the title should read “planning to build” not “building.”

    Actually, do you even “build” a forest? Surely it should be “plant.”

  5. 1. The entire Country.
    2. A +
    3. An L
    4. A diagonal line

    The title doesn’t make sense to me otherwise.
    Which one is it?

  6. Bruh whales are stupid as fuck they can’t build shit all they know is how to swim, eat and die

  7. Uhh, I’m Welsh and haven’t heard about this??

  8. Land use is the leading cause of species extinction, 50% of the worlds habital land is used for agriculture, of that 77% is used for livestock yet only provides us with 18% of our calories.

  9. Everyone else in the world: This is a pandemic, shelter-in-place, please people are dying.

    Wales: ***FOREST***.

  10. We’re going to grow a wall and make the UK pay for it!

  11. I want every sign in Welsh and no English translations.

  12. Wales is a beautiful and friendly place… Americans flock to Ireland and Scotland and mis what a gem Wales is.

  13. Breadth doesn’t look like a real word and I love it

  14. The puff piece doesn’t mention what they’re planting, which is much more important, with that flag photo on the backdrop of a monocultured pine farm.

  15. Plant edible fruit, nut and berry trees/bushes pants.

    Make an epic permaculture food forest!

  16. Misread forest as fortress, I kinda wish it was the latter in a last ditch attempt to stop the coronavirus.

  17. I believe the welsh anthem is the best anthem

  18. I would like to suggest some names:

    Myrryffydindrryn

    Caoieoghgogo-cough

  19. Damn that’s a dope flag.

  20. wait… doesn’t length and breadth just mean “the whole country”

  21. Now that one guy on YouTube can finally walk all the way across it in peace!

  22. Can they build it along the English border?

    TO ANY ENGLISHMAN READING THIS, THINKING OF BUGGING OUT IN YOUR FUCKING WELSH SUMMER HOME/CARAVAN… FUCK OFF. STAY WHERE YOU BELONG

  23. It’s going to be yewge

  24. Wales!!!!! Love seeing my country on here 🙂

  25. The Welsh have one of the most badass flags

  26. Side bar: Wales has the coolest fricking flag

  27. How does one build a forest?

    How many planks does it take to make a tree?

    Do you have to build the animals to or is it a I*f we build it they will come* type of a situation?

    What if beaver? Den wat do?

    Build forest?

  28. Its the new Wild Area in the DLC
