Tree planting and farming hand in hand: How to plant without affecting your subsidies

Read our case study on the Allerton Project, spearheaded by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, a trial to demonstrate that tree planting and farming go hand in hand.

Trees can bring a wealth of benefits to a farm, from life-saving shelter for livestock, combating soil erosion, warming the soil to extend the growing season and slowing run-off. They also provide habitats for game,
birds and wildlife, attract vital pollinators; and provide an extra income through wood-fuel.
