Put Down Roots with Woodland Creation

Discover how woodland creation can benefit your land and business.

As a farmer or landowner in England you can apply for a tree planting grant and reap the rewards of woodland creation now and for years to come.

Woodland creation can help you to improve your land, enrich biodiversity and the wider environment, and can enhance your business in the long-term, all while working hand-in-hand with food production.

With the wide range of woodland creation grants and free expert advice on offer from the Forestry Commission and all our Woodland Creation Partners, there’s no better time to put down roots.

The benefits of woodland creation are far-reaching. Find out what tree planting can do for your farming business.

Woodland creation grants and support

Choose a woodland creation grant for your land and get support in planting the right tree, in the right place, for the right reason.

Forestry is like slow-setting cement – you have time to adjust and re-set as you go. Thorough management during establishment creates a virtuous circle: if you do it right, the tree will do the job for you.
