The English Woodland Grant Scheme is now closed to new applications. Future funding will be available as part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme.
Woodland Creation Grant applications can be submitted from February 2015 onwards for a limited period of time. Applications will be competitive, with a minimum area of 3hectares required, and each planting block needing to be at least 0.5hectares in area. Exceptionally, a smaller minimum area of 1hectare, with planting blocks of at least 0.1hectares, will be available as part of a suite of options to address water quality. If you are considering planting any woodland, please contact the office as soon as possible for further information and help with applications.
