A Guide to the Central Scotland Green Network Contribution for New Woodland Creation
A guide to the CSGN Contribution for new woodland creation in Central Scotland, Ayrshire and parts of Fife.
The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Contribution is a single capital payment which applies to eligible Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS) woodland creation planting options. It is only available in the CSGN area and is offered at three rates (max £2 500/ha). This payment recognises the additional costs of planting and establishing new woodlands within the area where they will provide environmental, economic and social benefit and help to deliver the aims of regional forestry and woodland strategies.
