Yuccas on the fringe of Newborough Forest.

Yuccas on the fringe of Newborough Forest.

Apparently when the Forestry Commission first planted at Newborough, they indulged themselves by planting a diverse range of non-commercial species as well as the main conifer plantation. Amongst the various species planted were yuccas. Around the fringes of the forest, you still find the occasional yucca growing: whether they originate from those first plantings or are later arrivals, I don’t know.
