Funded support to help farmers manage and establish woodland

The Farm Advisory Service (FAS) is offering funded support to help Scottish farmers manage and establish woodland, and access funding through the Forestry Grant Scheme.

FAS works with farmers and crofters to determine if woodland creation is a viable revenue source by providing funding for expert consultancy in the form of one-to-one specialist advice or an Integrated Land Management Plan (ILMP).

The Forestry Grant Scheme helps farmers and crofters to derive revenue from less productive agricultural land by providing a range of financial support packages to help them to create new woodland or to manage existing woodland sustainably.
