The woodland creation capital grant is now open for applications.
It offers farmers and other land managers up to £6,800 per hectare to plant and protect young trees plus£200 per ha (for ten years) maintenance support for eligible schemes.
As well as enhancing the landscape, creating new woodland can support wildlife, reduce flood risk and improve water quality. It can also improve the environment’s resilience to climate change.
Creating woodland can also boost your business as it provides the opportunity to generate income through timber sales and commercial shooting.
Applications need to be submitted by 31st March 2016.
