Crofter Forestry

Crofters who hold a share in the common grazing (i.e. an area of grazing land used by a number of crofters and others who hold shares in that land) have the right to apply to the Commission to plant and develop woodland on their common grazings. They should also obtain consent of the owner of the common grazing.

Below you will find details of Forestry Grants for woodlands on Common Grazings.

 

Please ensure you submit your Registers of Scotland (RoS) Registration Application form along with your application, if required.
