Fund description:

The Woodland Carbon Fund is a grant to support the planting of multipurpose woodlands over 30 ha in size, providing opportunities to work in partnership at a landscape scale, to improve public access to woodland and achieve wider environmental outcomes.

Maximum grants available will range between £6,800 and £8,500 per hectare depending on the site’s location, with the higher rate available near to urban areas and if you provide permissive access to the public on foot. Additional support is available as a contribution to the installation of infrastructure such as footpaths to support recreation.

Land must be privately owned or owned by local authorities.
