NEW BOOST FOR WOODLAND CREATION IN THE HIGHLANDS
Native woodland creation has received a boost in funding in the Highlands of Scotland. The increased funding of an additional £400 per hectare recognises the higher costs of establishing woodland in more remote areas. In addition to the enhanced rates there is a higher rate for deer fencing which increases from £6.80 to £9.90 per metre. The move is in line with recent Scottish Government commitments to increase the woodland cover in Scotland significantly. the government target is now 15,000 Hectares (37,500 acres) per annum over teh next ten years.
