Grant Schemes / Funding Sources

Forestry Grants available

The Forestry Commission and Natural England are working together on Countryside Stewardship which offers grants for:

  • Woodland creation
  • Woodland improvement
  • Woodland management plans
  • Tree Health grants, when applicants have been issued with a Statutory Plant Health Notice.

Information on all these grants can be found at www.gov.uk and search for Countryside Stewardship.

The Forestry Commission also coordinates the Woodland Carbon Code, which can provide woodland owners with an income through carbon offsetting. More information about the scheme can be found at: www.forestry.gov.uk/carboncode/

The Woodland Trust offer grants for trees or the trees themselves for small scale plantings on farmland and for community or school projects. You can find out more about these at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/plant-trees/trees-on-land/grants-and-funding
