#EWGS schemes accepted
As a result of accepting these P2009 schemes, areas associated with them for planting in P2010 and P2011 have also been accepted. Only one scheme was not accepted, on the basis that it did not deliver sufficient public benefit.

A planting year runs from 1st October to 30th September with the latter year used to represent the crop. This means that trees planted between 1st October 2008 and 30th September 2009 will be referred to as P2009.
