Grants Available To Help Create Woodlands
Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) is offering grants to help create new native broadleaf woodland in the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale.
The initiative comes at a time when government climate advisers are saying almost three billion trees must be planted by 2050 in this country to end Britain’s contribution to global warming.
They are open to anyone who owns or manages land and will help the creation of new native broadleaf woodland of any size including the costs of fencing and access.
Carol Douglas, Woodland Officer at YDMT, said:
“We’re really pleased to be offering support to those individuals and groups who want to create beautiful woodlands that everyone can enjoy.
“That is a key part of our Together for Trees campaign as well as providing an opportunity for people to get actively involved with trees and woodlands and the social benefits they have to offer.
“If you have a desire to create woodlands for the future then please get in touch for an initial conversation about the process. The deadline for final applications is 31 July.”
The scheme forms a key part of Clapham-based charity’s Together for Trees campaign, which aims to support the planting of 100,000 trees in the Yorkshire Dales over the next two years.
To date YDMT has supported the planting of 1.5 million trees in the Dales and surrounding areas ensuring long term conservation, landscape and environment benefits.
For further details contact Carol Douglas, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 015242 51002.
Forms and guidance will be available on the YDMT website shortly.
