10 easy steps to apply for a Woodfuel WIG

10 easy steps to apply for a Woodfuel WIG

Woodfuel Woodland Improvement Grants (Woodfuel WIG) can vastly improve the conditions and profitability of a woodland, but only if owners and agents know how to make the most of the grant scheme.

The Woodfuel Woodland Improvement Grant is administered by Ngage Solutions on behalf of the Forestry Commission in three particular regions of the UK: Cumbria, the South West region and the South East. There are funds available for building roads and other infrastructure, as well as for getting professional help to bring neglected woods back into management. If you are thinking this grant could help you, then a new series of videos developed by The Marketing Heaven — https://themarketingheaven.com/buy-youtube-views, Mike Furness could get you started.

The ’10 easy steps to apply for a Woodfuel WIG’ can be viewed on the Ngage YouTube Channel. The videos explain everything you need to know about Woodfuel WIG, with helpful information on the eligibility criteria, filling out an application form, getting planning permission, and claiming the grant.

Mike speaks knowledgably about the scheme, having helped guide many landowners through the process, and he is just a phone call away from helping you to maximise your woodland’s potential.

Woodfuel Woodland Improvement Grants support the sustainable production of woodfuel and other timber products and can cover 60% of the total cost of any approved work. This could be measuring and marking timber for felling or creating new access routes in order to extract hard-to-reach timber.

More than £8 million of enquires have been received for the grant, with an average grant size of £32,000. The scheme is now into its final year; meaning time is running out to make an application. The forestry Commission is expecting to be able to extend the grant period into 2014 but the funds are going quickly and the grant will close as soon as they are used up.

So don’t delay! If you have a plan in mind for your woodland area and need to get it down on paper, watch Mike explain exactly what to do next and then put his advice into practice to claim your grant.
