Funding and grant advice

We are currently working with a number of woodland owners to assist with WIG ( Woodland Improvement Grant) applications, which we do believe will catylise getting unmanaged woodland back into management.

In many cases, the local market is there for the wood but after years of neglect, and the fact that harvesting equipment and lorries have increased in size to maximise productivity, many woodlands need a capital grant to improve access and assistance with the management plan cost.

Once the access is improved to modern standards, the harvesting and extraction becomes a financially viable proposition.
