Create Your Own Small Woodland - With Free Trees

Tuesday, 9th December 2008

Small parcels of land are perfect for the National Forest One Acre Woodland Scheme or the 500 – 2,000 trees scheme.

Simon Greenhouse, Woodland Officer with the National Forest Company, said: "We have a range of free tree initiatives available to landowners in The National Forest that can help to create small copses, amenity woods, screens and shelter belts.  We can offer our One Acre Woodland Scheme and the 500 – 2,000 trees scheme, but we are happy to discuss all the available options with anyone who might be interested in planting trees in the Forest. This is the time of year to get the trees in the ground, so talk to us now.

“The National Forest Company works with farms, schools, parish councils, golf clubs, mineral companies and other individuals and organisations who own land within the 200 square miles of The National Forest and are interested in planting trees.  The benefits for the land and those who use the land are many, and it is a fantastic opportunity to get involved and help create this forest in the making."
