Felling Licence cases that the Forestry Commission is prepared to approve are displayed on the register. These cases are marked as "FPR". The status changes to "CNT" when we approve the application and details are again displayed.

FGS Woodland Creation and Agroforestry options

You will see details of these Forestry Grant Scheme applications only if the area of the option within the proposal is greater than 2 hectares.  Only application data for cases we are prepared to approve is displayed.

FGS Woodland Improvement Grant – Long Term Forest Planning

These applications are put on this register after the preparation of the Plan has been approved and the draft Forest Plan has been submitted to Forestry Commission Scotland for assessment.

Please note that most applications are for work that will take place on private land and you may need permission to enter the area even if the case is listed on the register.
