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.
