    "Landmark £15 million woodland creation grant opens for applications"

    “Great to see the new suite of planting grants with significantly higher levels launched today that makes woodland creation even more attractive. Forestry grants and regulation continue to lead the way in land use." (Neville Elstone)

    "None of the planned interventions within ELMS has such a robust management plan, against a sector agreed standard and truly pays for public goods like the stackable options do within EWCO.” (Neville Elstone)

  • "Government has published new tree and peat action plans that will help us tackle climate change, protect and restore our trees and reach net zero by 2050."

    Cumbria Woodlands welcomes the launch this week of the England Trees Action Plan, some ambitious “we will’s” in the plan which is great to see. A tripling of establishment rates in England is great to hear, it will be fascinating to see how the interactions of reductions in BPS, ELMS and the new support for creation interplay with the increasing regulatory tensions of peat and breeding birds in the uplands.

    "Plans to treble tree planting rates in England during this Parliament will be funded through £500 million from the Nature for Climate Fund while A major new multimillion pound tree planting grant – the England Woodland Creation Offer - will provide greater financial incentives for landowners and farmers to plant and manage trees."
