A KEEN photographer has spotted words on a hillside near the A465 between Hereford and Abergavenny.

Eagle-eyed drivers might have also spotted the he Welsh phrase "daw eto ddail ar fryn" cut into the hillside.

It has been cut into bracken on Bryn Arw near the Herefordshire-Monmouthshire border again, with the phrase translating as "again leaves come on a hill".


Ian Forbes shared a picture in the Hereford Times Camera Club Facebook group.

The idea came from Welsh artist Mick Petts, who has been raising awareness of a project to plant one million trees in the Brecon Beacons since 2020.

Rob Penn and Keith Powell head up the Stump Up For Trees group, which wants to plant a million trees in the Brecon Beacons National Park.


"Stump up for trees" has also previously been cut in the undergrowth.

"Trees give life. It's hard to overstate their benefit," Mr Penn said.


"Trees provide wildlife habitat, food, medicine, shade, sustainable timber, improved air quality, natural flood management and healthier soil.

"Most importantly in today's urgent debate about climate change, trees sequester carbon. They mitigate climate change and tree planting is now recognised as one of the best ways to tackle this global crisis.

"We just have to get on with it."
