The Woodfuel Woodland Improvement Grant
The Woodfuel WIG is a great opportunity for owners, managers and agents to start to manage woodlands and access the growing woodfuel market. You can take advantage of this time-limited opportunity to fund projects worth anything up to £250,000. The grant can cover 60% of your costs. But there is a deadline for applications.
