Woodland Creation Planning Fund 2021/22

Delivery

This funding is to help delivery of the National Park Partnership Plan target of creating 2,000 ha of woodland by 2023 and contribute to the Scottish Government woodland creation target.

The fund will encourage appropriate woodland creation proposals within target areas identified in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Trees and Woodland Strategy using one or more of the following woodland creation options in the Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme:

  • Native Upland Birch,
  • Native Broadleaves,
  • Native Low-density Broadleaves,
  • Native Scots Pine, and
  • Productive Broadleaves (subject to appropriate species choice). 

What we fund

The fund would support costs reasonably incurred in the development of a woodland creation proposal such as surveys (such as habitat, peat depth, soil), planting options and landscape assessments undertaken to assess potential woodland creation sites. The maximum grant would be between £1,500 and £3,000 (inclusive of any irrecoverable VAT) depending on size of the woodland creation proposal

Assessment 

Funding support will be assessed on how the proposed scheme helps to deliver the objectives as set out in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Trees and Woodland Strategy

In addition, the funding support will be judged against the extent to which the proposed scheme may contribute towards the creation/expansion of key habitats:

  • Woodland Habitat Networks
  • Riparian Woodland
  • Montane Woodland
  • Atlantic Oak Woodlands
  • Caledonian Pinewoods
