This is a starting point and further information can be found by contacting us at The Farming Life Centre, by following the links provided, or contact your local Forestry Commission (FC) area office.

The Peak District National Park Small Woodland Creation Scheme

Following the successes of previous years, the partnership project between the Peak District National Park Authority and the Woodland Trust is again looking for more suitable sites for new native woodland planting. The Peak District Small Woodland Creation Scheme was set up to fund planting in small areas where the national Countryside Stewardship Scheme is not applicable, and has so far supported 30 hectares of woodland creation.

The Peak Park would welcome any enquiries for any potential woodland creation opportunities. Please contact Ben Lambert on 01629 816395 or email ben.lambert@peakdistrict.gov.uk for further information.
