Grangewood: how trees and management can benefit your land

Landowner Jane Kirkland talks about how tree planting has supported their land and business at Grangewood Farm and Forestry.

05 Sep 2023

Grangewood Farm and Forestry was one of the early adopters of tree planting in the National Forest and has since seen incredible benefits for their land. From natural flood management and wildlife, to now producing a regular timber crop, watch as Jane talks about her inspirational story, the legacy of tree planting and how the National Forest can help landowners increase the potential of their land.    

We are aiming for 33% forest cover in the National Forest to benefit the environment, people, wildlife and business; working with farm and landowners to maximise the benefits of their land, produce high-quality products and support land management.

If you own a farm or land in the National Forest, our grants can help you to create and manage woodlands, maintain habitats such as meadows, wetlands, ponds, parkland and hedges, and diversify your land and business into the future. We can offer free and impartial advice on large and small sites, application is straightforward and up to 100% of costs can be covered. To find out more about our grants and if you’re eligible you can email

So far, we have planted 9 million trees in the National Forest. If you want to part of growing a greener future but don’t own land, you can still support this work by making a donation or helping us create more woodlands by dedicating a tree.
