Forestry Commission Wales (FCW) has extended the deadline for grant claims to allow more time to complete work delayed by the recent extreme weather conditions.
The deadline for woodland owners and agents to submit claims for work has been extended to 26 March.
Over the past month, forest operations in many private woodlands throughout the country ground to a halt because access to sites was impossible. Even when the main roads were clear, forest roads and high ground remained difficult to reach.
FCW operations manager for the BWW scheme Rachel Chamberlain said, "The Better Woodlands for Wales grant scheme for private woodlands supports the many people in Wales who make a living from planting, felling and managing our woodlands.
"FCW has acted swiftly to support the timber industry which, like many parts of our economy, was affected by the recent bad weather."
