The Forestry Expansion Scheme has been launched for 2019 which means if you have a minimum of five hectares of land you can apply for a government grant for a new woodland to be planted.
The grant is up to 100 per cent funded and attracts an annual income of up to £425 for 10 years and can be in addition to Single Farm Payments.
IndiWoods is a woodland consultancy specialising in securing the government funding for farmers and landowners who wish to plant trees on their land. You don’t have to be farmer to apply.
The deadline for 2019 is SEPTEMBER 30. If you’re interested you must act in order to get your application in. Carolyn Trimble, owner of IndiWoods, celebrated planting her one millionth tree here in Northern Ireland in 2017. In 2019 Carolyn celebrated being a FINALIST in the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council’s annual Business Awards in the Outstanding Woman in Business Award. category.
Take advantage of this fantastic scheme and your land can be part of this wonderful story too. But don’t delay – applications must be received by September 30. There’s only one deadline this year!
