Growing trees and your business at the same time
Woodlands integrated into farm businesses can offer considerable benefits without compromising food production and farm business viability. In 2021, smaller woodland owners, farmers and crofters accounted for almost 200 of the 320 woodland creation schemes approved under the Forestry Grants Scheme (FGS). Under the FGS, farmers can receive grants of up to £6,210 per hectare towards the costs of new woodland planting, with money for fencing and tree protection available on top. Farmers within the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) area can also get a special contribution of up to £2,500 per hectare, with other regional top up’s available elsewhere in Scotland, location dependent. Greens Farm, Dunsyre is just one of a growing number of business benefitting from the integration of forestry with farming. Click here to read more.
