The Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) — a scheme that provides a £1.6bn injection of government cash into economic, environmental and social measures — has made changes to its tree grants.
The SRDP has added three items to the list of capital items eligible under the grants scheme under the option: Woodland Improvement Grant — Woodland Habitats and Species.
These capital items are:
- Removal of tree crop to waste 3m-6m high
- Woodland clearance benefiting raised bog/blanket bog — felling to waste
- Woodland clearance benefiting raised bog/blanket bog — felling and extraction
