RDC - Woodland Creation Boundary

Woodland Creation formed part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) 2007 - 2013. The SRDP is a programme of economic, environmental and social measures, utilising European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development funding plus Scottish Government match funding. The RDC-RP programme was designed to support rural Scotland between 2007 and 2013. Individuals and groups could seek funding to help deliver the Government's strategic objectives in rural Scotland.

Woodlands are a vital sustainable natural resource and funding aimed to encourage the creation of new woodlands with grants that will contribute to the cost of their establishment.

Within Rural Priorities there were eight woodland creation options.

Productive conifer woodland (low cost) Productive conifer woodland (high cost) Productive broadleaved woodland Native Woodlands Naturally regenerated native woodland Mixed conifer/broadleaf woodland Northern & Western Isles Native Woodland Central Scotland Mixed Woodland

The woodland creation boundary polygons in this dataset represent the total area covered by a single application and may encompass several different planting options and claim years.
