Trees – Call to Action Fund

8 November

 

Extra funding to create jobs, expand woodlands and protect trees across England

  • £6 million fund opens for projects to protect trees and woodlands, boost forestry skills and jobs, develop woodland creation partnerships, and engage communities with nature
  • Three new regional woodland creation partnerships to be funded, helping the country build back greener from the pandemic
  • Applications start from 3 November, with environmental charities, environmental not-for-profits, local authorities and protected landscape bodies encouraged to apply

 The fund is open for Expressions of Interest between 3 – 16 November 2021.

More information on the fund and how to apply is available on the  Heritage Fund Website

Grants of £250,000 to £500,000 will be awarded to projects across England, at least three of which will be for new regional partnerships set up to create woodlands at a large scale and improve people’s access to nature, following the Forest for Cornwall partnership.

The fund will competitively allocate funding to up to 24 regional or national projects managed by partnerships of environmental charities, not-for-profit organisations, local authorities and protected landscape bodies.

Funding will be targeted at regions, activities and costs which are not supported by other government funding for trees, aiming to increase community understanding of and access to trees and woodlands, and boost efforts to increase woodland cover in areas that need it most.

To increase the capacity and skills of the sector, the fund will also support projects to engage people with trees, create new jobs and develop skills and knowledge, for example this could be by developing training and placement programmes for new foresters and woodland managers.
