Woodland Grant Scheme 1

The Woodland Grant Scheme (WGS) provided incentives for people to create and manage woodlands on sites all over Great Britain.

The Forestry Commission (now Scottish Forestry) paid grants for establishing and looking after woodlands and forests. To qualify for grant the applicant had to meet the standards of environmental protection and practice set out in the Forestry Commission’s guidelines at that time.

WGS1 operated between June 1988 and June 1991.

Updates to scheme boundaries and grant aided areas were incorporated into the dataset on a regular basis until the end of 2004. No further changes will be made after this time.
