WOODLAND CREATION

Plant for the future to produce income as well as sequester carbon and help combat climate change.

Wales is investing £8 million in 2020 through Glastir Woodland Creation to meet a planting target of 2000 hectares per year.

England has an ambition to plant 30,000 hectares of new woodland by 2025 investing £640 million which will include peat restoration.

Scotland is currently planting more than 10000 hectares per year which will increase to 16000 hectares by 2026.

Following the UK’s withdraw from the EU agricultural subsidies will decline. The available planting grants, combined with opportunities to sell sequestered carbon, present an exciting opportunity to diversify your business and generate a new income stream.

Our services include:

  • Woodland creation design ensuring the right tree is planted in the right place.
  • Grant applications: the Glastir Woodland Creation scheme in Wales, the Countryside Stewardship Scheme in England and the Forestry Grant Scheme in    Scotland.
  • The delivery of approved schemes including ground preparation, tree supply, planting and maintenance.
