Increase in SRDP woodland grant rates

From January 2011 some new woodland creation applications to the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP) will be eligible for an additional 10% grant rate.

The extra 10% will apply to capital items (planting work, fences, gates etc) in applications that are either:

  • using any of the three productive woodland creation options on sites recognised as 'preferred' or 'potential' in their local indicative forest strategy; or
  • using any of the woodland creation options within the Central Scotland Green Network area.

You can find further information about the new grant rates on the SRDP website.
