Woodland creation provides funding to supply, plant, weed and protect young trees. See the capital item supply and plant trees (TE4) for requirements, supporting capital items and payment rates.
The woodland creation grant closed for applications on 16 February 2018.
Tree planting under TE4 and other associated capital items are one-off payments. The agreement ends once the final claim has been paid. Capital items must remain installed and in good condition for 5 years from the date of final payment.
