The Croft Woodlands Project offers free advice and support to crofters, common grazings and the wider crofting community to create new, mixed woodland and shelterbelts or improve the management of existing native woodland. Support is also available to smallholders in the Crofting Counties. Funding is available for small scale-tree planting and hedges. The Project can also help with the costs of preparing and submitting an application to the Forestry Grant Scheme.
The Croft Woodlands Project is a partnership between Scottish Crofting Federation, the Woodland Trust Scotland, Point and Sandwick Trust, Forestry Commission Scotland and, Coigach & Assynt Living Landscapes, Shetland Amenity Trust, Orkney Woodland Project, Argyll Small Woods Cooperative and the Highland Small Communities Housing Trust. It will run until mid 2020.
