Sheep Farming with Trees Factsheet
An overview of how your flock and business can benefit from forestry grants.
Farming with trees can bring you many benefits including: improving the productivity of your land and livestock; managing flood risks; helping to address climate change and growing your business.
The Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS), part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP), offers sheep farmers attractive funding opportunities to plant new or manage existing woodlands. Open to applications all year round, the scheme provides welcome flexibility and avoids any requirement to complete your application during peak lambing periods.
