South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant Scheme

The South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant scheme includes the whole of the Dumfries and Galloway area and seeks to grow the numbers of woodland trees with small areas of planting to benefit the Dumfries and Galloway landscape whilst promoting the guardianship of woodland environments in local communities.

The scheme is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Dumfries and Galloway Council and private donations. Although it is being administered by the Galloway Glens, the grants are available for planting schemes across the whole of the region.

This grant is for small tree and woodland planting projects which fall below the size eligible for the Forestry Grant Scheme. The maximum grant available is £1000 per applicant per year. Applications will be assessed on a first-come-first-served basis.
