The Caerau Park Estate was built on land nearly 250m above sea level. Due its location it collects a lot of rainfall and there is little tree protection from the wind on the north west and north east sides.
Research carried out in 2011 by the Environment Agency and Welsh Water helped to shape some of the recent Eco Llynfi plans. A tree planting scheme for 70 trees and shrubs was agreed with Valleys to Coast worked and the Friends of Brynhelog in March 2013.
Later on in the month Valleys to Coast worked with the Friends of Brynheulog, Keep Wales Tidy and Bridgend County Borough Council to clear the land and plant the trees.
