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: Hedgerow and Boundaries Grant is  open for applications until 3rd May 2019. It’s a capital grant  designed to help farmers and land managers restore existing farm boundaries, and deliver environmental and landscape benefits on their land. The scheme is competitive, which means that your application will be scored against other applications in order to ensure the best value for money.

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.
