Grants

Countryside Stewardship. Farmers and other land managers may be eligible to apply for an agreement with Natural England that will provide financial support for their land management including hedge restoration and management.

The Countryside Stewardship: Hedgerows and Boundaries Grant closed for applications on 30th April 2018. This was a stand alone capital grant for farmers and other land managers to help provide environmental and landscape benefits on their land.

The Woodland Trust are funding new hedges through MOREhedges, available from November 2019. They can help with funding if you’re planting new hedgerows on your land. They can subsidise 60% of the cost if you plant more than 100 metres of new hedging with a large tree growing through every six metres.
