Funding/Grants for planting trees and woods
There are a variety of sources providing funding for tree planting and woodland creation. The key is finding the right one for your project. Information on funding becomes out of date very quickly.
However Tree Planting Grants are currently available from:
The Woodland Trust
The Tree Council Futures Grant Scheme for Schools and the Community
Funds are also available for the planting of orchards by schools and
community groups through the Orchard Windfalls Fund. Projects between
£100 and £700 can be funded and successful applicants will
receive up to 75% towards their planting costs. For example, if your
project totals £700, The Tree Council would offer up to £525.
The remaining 25% will need to be secured by your school or organisation.
