Woodland Regeneration Grant

EWGS is now closed to any new applications - documents listed on this webpage are for reference only


Woodland Regeneration Grant (WRG) contributes to the costs of making changes to the composition of woodland within the normal cycle of felling and regeneration. The objective is to support an increase in the capacity for sustainable management through this process.

The Forestry Commission has updated WRG for 2014 to simplify grant rates which are currently only available for Plant Health WRG.
