New Woodfuel Woodland improvement grant available

27 June 2011


The Forestry Commission is offering a new grant that supports the sustainable production of woodfuel and other timber products. Work needs to meet the UK Forest Standard but the basis for support is economic rather than environmental or social.

This grant will open for applications in Summer 2011

The grant offers 60% towards the cost of work, and doesn’t take account of the timber income that results. The following main operations are supported:

Roads, tracks and other infrastructure to assist the extraction of timber from woodland. Support will be based on 3 quotes and grant paid on the production of receipted invoices.

Woodland inventory and costs associated with managing harvesting contracts. Support for this work is based on standard costs.
