English Woodland Grant Scheme
The English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) is the Forestry Commission's suite of grants designed to develop the co-ordinated delivery of public benefits from England's woodlands.
The aims of the EWGS are to sustain and increase the public benefits given by existing woodlands and help create new woodlands to deliver additional public benefit. For further information look at their website www.forestry.gov.uk
If you live within the Howardian Hills AONB or North York Moors National Park (NYMNP) and are thinking of applying for a grant, but perhaps require some support and advice in doing so, then please contact Mark Antcliff, the Native Woodland Development Officer who is based at the NYMNP office in Helmsley.

EWGS is not the only grant available for tree planting. If you have ideas that do not fit within EWGS please take a look at this guidance sheet which provides details of some potential alternative sources of support.
