The site is owned by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and is managed in partnership with Natural Resources Wales. It is one of six Welsh wood pasture sites of international importance, due to its rich and diverse lichens.

A designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), National Nature Reserve (NNR) and Special Area of Conservation (SAC), Tycanol is home to more than 400 species of lichens.

In total the National Park Authority owns 250 hectares of woodland which is managed by its woodland team.
