The Forestry Commission has taken the opportunity to open these options earlier than previously planned with funding now available for this year.
You can access details about both options by clicking on the appropriate option links on the Forestry Grant Scheme web page. https://www.ruralpayments.org/publicsite/futures/topics/all-schemes/forestry-grant-scheme/
Please note that there is a tight application window of 14 September 2015 in order to meet the 2015 claim deadline and that businesses will need to be registered for FGS before they can apply. If you are interested in any of these grants then please speak with your local Conservancy. Conservancies will gauge local demand for customer workshops and may run some events later in the year in time for the 2016 application window.
