Woodland Grant Scheme 1


The Woodland Grant Scheme (WGS) provides incentives for people to create and manage woodlands on sites all over Great Britain.

The Forestry Commission pays grants for establishing and looking after woodlands and forests. To qualify for grant the applicant must meet the standards of environmental protection and practice set out in the Forestry Commission’s guidelines.

WGS1 operated between June 1988 and June 1991. It was replaced by WGS2.
