Subsidised Tree's – Join the Fight Against Tree Disease Today!
Farmers and landowners in the Lincolnshire Wolds are being offered subsidised tree's as part of a partnership between The Woodland Trust and Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service.
Applicants can choose to plant a native mixed hedge to improve connectivity between habitats, or create a native mixed woodland of at least half a hectare (1.25 acres) - all at a greatly reduced price.
All claimants need do is contribute 20% towards the costs of plants and materials, and arrange for the tree's to be planted.
Woodland Trust woodland creation adviser Emma Bird said:
"A good mix of native tree's increases landscape resilience against pests and disease. Planting tree's can also encourage wildlife, improve soil and air quality, prevent flooding, combat climate change and improve health and wellbeing. We are delighted to be working with Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service to provide trees to local landowners."
All the tree's are one or two year old saplings –around 40-60 cm at first, and will provide canopy and shade within ten years. The tree's also come with suitable protection from rabbits or deer.
