Bank of Scotland & the Woodland Trust

We’re working with Bank of Scotland to help farmers and landowners with their plans to transition to a low carbon future. If you’re looking to plant more than half a hectare of woodland and/or 100m of hedgerow, the MOREwoods and MOREhedges schemes are ideal. We can provide generous funding of up to 75% to cover costs, as well as advice on how and where to plant, and in some cases, help with planting.

Benefits of tree planting

Our MOREwoods and MOREhedges schemes can bring a multitude of benefits to your farm, such as:

• Helping to manage flooding
• Providing wood fuel
• Offering habitats for game and wildlife

You can choose to create a shelterbelt, fill a corner of a field or even plant a small wood.

Apply today

Planting season is November to March, but it’s never too early to start planning! Apply now and our woodland creation experts will work with you to create a plan that meets the needs of your land.
