Forestry Commission

We are the government department responsible for protecting, expanding and promoting woodlands and trees. We are here to provide advice and guidance on the benefits of planting trees on your farm including the financial benefits that a woodland can bring. We have a wide range of grants available for planting trees and woodlands on existing farmland that can generate an extra income through such things as timber, carbon capture or recreation. Woodland officers can provide expert advice to help you understand the best option for your land and guide you through the application and planting process.
