Thanks to the RFS for this update:


Snow brings grant extension


FC Wales has decided to extend the deadline for applications to its woodland

management fund, following an extended period of adverse weather conditions

which turned many Welsh woodlands into icy no-go zones. A low of –17˚C was

recorded in Powys – officially colder than Greenland. The weather meant woodlands

were inaccessible and so planned work could not be completed.


One claim will be permitted to include all work in any claim year, and this must be submitted

by 28 February of that year. Details are at www.forestry.gov.uk/glastirwoodland, and claims

forms are also on the main part of the FC website under www.forestry.gov.uk/wales or

contact the Technical Services team on 0300 068 0300.
