Tree planting grants


If you would like to plant a woodland and have a minimum area of 0.1 hectares available (capable of taking 200 trees or more), you can submit an application here. Once you have submitted your application, we will be able to advise you on woodland creation, management and also the funding options best suited to your site.

As part of the LincWoods project strategy to increase tree planting, we may be able to offer free native planting schemes to:

  • parish councils
  • voluntary groups
  • private landowners
  • farmers around the county

Applications for trees in private gardens will not be accepted. Applicants must be able to plant the trees between November 2024 and March 2025 and agree to keep the area around the tree weed free for three years and not remove the trees for 25 years.

All schemes will be scored according to their wildlife and landscape benefit and proposed maintenance. Should more applications be received than our funding allows, only the highest scoring schemes will be awarded trees.

The deadline for 2024 applications is 1 September. If you submit after this deadline, your application will still be considered for 2025.
