Creating Woodlands For Cash, Carbon & Conservation in England
22 June 2021
Join Tilhill, the UK’s leading forestry management company, to explore the new funding opportunities for woodland creation in this webinar for England.
The webinar will take farmers, landowners and investors through the process of planting trees on their unproductive or unused land for income, conservation, environmental, and carbon related opportunities.
The event is a timely opportunity following the announcement of the government’s England Trees Action Plan and long-term vision for trees, woodland and forests, with plans to restore nature and build back greener, and to see the trebling of tree planting by the end of Parliament being backed by over £500 million of climate finance.
David Edwards, Tilhill’s Forestry Director, longstanding Fellow and former President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters, who has spent 37 years in forestry, will Chair the event which will discuss:
- Making an income from trees by utilising currently unproductive land
- The grants available
- Biodiversity, water & productivity
- Multi-benefit woodlands/alternative species
- Designing a potential scheme
- Carbon incentives
