Woodland Creation Grant

The aim of the Woodland Creation Grant is to support the creation of new woodland that will bring economic, environmental and social benefits.

These benefits include:

  • meeting the targets to increase woodland cover
  • helping mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration
  • restoration of 'lost' habitats through developing forest habitat networks
  • supporting a sustainable forest industry by providing a reliable timber supply
  • protecting soil and water
  • providing community benefits through public access
  • enhancing urban areas and improving landscapes
  • supporting rural development through local businesses and farm diversification
     

The grant support for this category has nine woodland creation options.

There is an initial planting payment and an annual maintenance payment for five years.
