Grants
There are grants available for the afforestation of agricultural land that is suitable for commercial forestry, subject to environmental considerations and proof of ownership.

Up to 100% grants are available. If you are thinking of planting please contact us immediately!

There are detailed conditions and written Forest Service approval must be obtained before undertaking afforestation. After planting, a detailed application including details of some costs, is required to enable grant and premium payment. Grants can cover up to 100% of costs subject to the maximum rates.
