Crofter / Landowner

Northern and Western Isles Woodland Creation

Tenants and landowners can apply for grants to plant new areas of woodland in Shetland. The Woodlands Projects Officer acts as an agent for the Forestry Commission in advising and assessing potential sites for this grant scheme which is part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme. A detailed set of guidance notes have been produced to help applicants through this process, and further advice can be given if required. See our Advice and Resources page for more details.
