The Dumfries & Galloway Woodlands Initiative is launched!

With £1,000 grants available for Tree Planting across the region.

Could a grant of up to £1,000 towards trees, tree guards and protection help you plant some trees this winter? The South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant Scheme is designed to support small scale planting of native trees across Dumfries & Galloway, delivering biodiversity, carbon capture and landscape benefits for all.

The Scheme was launched in Dumfries & Galloway in 2021, with more than 22,000 trees planted to date. This year’s scheme is now open for applications, with support and administration now provided by ‘Dumfries & Galloway Woodlands’, a new, not-for-profit initiative established in the region to support trees, habitats and people as we look to respond to the climate and biodiversity crises.

The South of Scotland Tree Planting Grant Scheme aims to support projects that are planting up to 0.25 hectares of native trees, with funds able to support the actual purchase of the trees and the tree protection. Full information about the Scheme is available here:
