A total of  90,000 native trees will be planted in the earmarked 50-hectare site in the Gwendraeth Valley, between Llanelli and Carmarthen.

But the trust has warned it needs to raise at least £500,000 out of the total cost of £1.2m by the end of August to ensure the project goes ahead.

The trust's Wales director Jerry Langford said: "We hope to see thousands of people getting involved by planting their own tribute or dedicating trees in memory of loved ones."

Centenary Woodland sites have already been revealed in Scotland and Northern Ireland. Details of the site in England are expected shortly.
