FGS Target Area - Small Native Woods in Crofting Counties

This dataset identifies the target area within which small FGS woodland creation applications for the 'Native Broadleaves in the Northern and Wester Isles' option can get a higher grant rate to reflect the increased cost of delivering these small schemes. The target area is based on the 'crofting counties' defined by the Crofting Commission.

To be eligible, the woodland creation must be less than 3ha and must be within areas identified as 'preferred' or 'potential' on the relevant local authority woodland strategy (or equivalent). The relevant forest and woodland strategies are: Highland, Argyll and Bute, Moray, Cairngorms National Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and Ayrshire and Arran.
