Notes:

1.  Non-FC/ FS figures are based on areas for which grants were paid during the year, together with an estimate of areas planted without grant aid.  Figures for grant-aided planting under Rural Development Contracts in Scotland relate to calendar years.

2.  The planting season lies both sides of 31 March, and the weather can cause planting to be advanced or delayed.

3.  Includes natural colonisation and natural regeneration.

Longer time series of the above table are available from the Woodland Area and Planting Statistics web page.
