Landowner support from the Forest for Cornwall
The Forest for Cornwall team has been busy getting out and about, stepping up our efforts to advise and support tree planting across Cornwall. There’s been a huge number of public enquiries about the project with offers and suggestions to support the Forest for Cornwall vision. This is fantastic, and we’re following up all the leads… but 8000 ha of trees is a lot of land so we’re really stepping up our efforts to support woodland establishment and forge those links that will make this possible including with farmers, partner organisations, existing advisers and landowners.
The Forest for Cornwall team would like to hear from you if you would like to explore the options for trees on your land. We can carry out an initial discussion, site visit, and offer general advice and support with suitable planting or the grants available to help get trees in the ground and how to make this work around your farm business. We can also put you in touch with other organisations for specialist support and advice if you want to progress. We are planning a series of public events to raise awareness and share information – on planting schemes, grant funding and agroforestry… watch this space!
