What is the Croft Woodlands Project?
The Croft Woodlands Project was established in 2015 and offers free support to crofters, common grazings committees and smallholders within the crofting counties.
Advisers carry out site assessments, offer technical advice and help with access to funding. While advice is mainly focused on new woodland planting it can also include management of existing woodland as well as a programme of training events and knowledge transfer sessions.
As a result, the project delivers multiple benefits in terms of shelter, agricultural diversification, forest products, landscape and the environment.
We work in partnership with:
- Scottish Crofting Federation
- Woodland Trust Scotland
- Cogiach & Assynt Living Landscape
- Point and Sandwick Trust
- Woodland Crofts
- Shetland Amenity Trust
- Orkney Woodland Project
- Communities Housing Trust
- Argyll Small Woodlands Cooperative
