If you're based in the Scottish Borders you can enquire about a free woodland assessment to Tweed Forum - feel free to drop an email to hamish.robertson@tweedforum.org

Are you in the Cairngorms?  Get extra help and funding.  The Cairngorms National Park Woodland Challenge Fund is designed to help reduce the costs of preparing an application to Scottish Forestry's Grant Scheme

If you are based in Central Scotland Scottish Forestry are offering a number of FREE Farm Woodland Assessments are available, to help farms and estates identify opportunities for new woodland planting to support their businesses. The free, no obligation, assessments identify  new areas for woodland planting. As well as detailing available grant options and other potential additional funding avenues, they explore predicted expenditure and cash flow through the Forestry Grants Scheme until the woodland is established.  For further information contact virginia.hardenscott@forestry.gov.scot

We’ll be selecting more demonstrator farms and crofts as the network develops.  If you would like to be involved or have ideas about what you’d like  events to focus on, please do get in touch with us: Lyn.White@forestry.gov.scot and Hilary.Grant@gov.scot
