The Woodland Grant Scheme (WGS) provides incentives for people to create and manage woodlands on sites all over Great Britain. The Forestry Commission pays grants for establishing and looking after woodlands and forests.

To qualify for grant the applicant must meet the standards of environmental protection and practice set out in the Forestry Commission’s guidelines.

WGS3 was launched during September 1994 and was closed for new applications in Scotland in February 2003. It was then replaced by the Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme (SFGS).

Updates to scheme boundaries and grant aided areas were incorporated into the dataset on a regular basis until the end of 2012. No further changes will be made after this time.
