Forestry / Woodland Grants In Scotland?

Recommended Posts

Slightly off topic but relevant to land and use of land

Does anyone know what the Government incentive scheme is for forests/ Woodland.

Can you get a grant to own a forest from the government or to turn arable land into woodland.

If anybody knows what grants are available can they let me know as interested to look into.

Cheers Del

Not sure.

There was an announcement recently of allowing crofting communities to buy woodland for crofting use

The old grant schemes were fairly generous but were scrapped last year. The new scheme has strings attached like public access and financially is hardly worth the hassle of applying for. I believe there are modest tax benefits but to benefit from these your woodland would have to make a profit which is unlikely. The days when Terry Wogan and others could offset forestry expenses against income tax have long gone.

Look at the forestry commission website or defra for more details.
