Grants for the Creation of New Woodland
Glastir Woodland Creation (GWC)
The Welsh Government is committed to planting more trees in Wales through GWC to deliver a wide range of benefits.
Four different grant categories are available, each with their own payment levels and requirements, providing support for creation of a broad spectrum of woodland types to meet a range of ownership objectives.
GWC grants are awarded on a competitive points system with expressions of interest currently being invited twice a year. Grant rates depend on the type of planting and are bolstered by ‘income foregone’ and ‘Basic’ (formerly Single Farm) payments.Read More
The Woodland Investment Grant (TWIG)
The new woodland creation offer scheme will provide financial support for woodland creation and improving existing woodlands. The aim is to connect woodlands in Wales whilst demonstrating learning, research and innovation.
The scheme provides grants to enhance and expand existing woodlands and create new woodlands in accordance with the UK Forestry Standard, which have the potential to become part of the National Forest in the future. This means woodlands that are well-managed, accessible to people and give local communities the opportunity to get involved.Read More
