This is the second year of ‘Put Down Roots’ – Defra’s national tree planting campaign – which encourages farmers and landowners to create woodland using Woodand Creation grants. 

This year the campaign spotlights the England Woodland Creation Offer, which is administered by the Forestry Commission, plus a variety of regional grants delivered by various Woodland Creation partners across England.

The campaign highlights the benefits of woodland creation; including improving land, enriching biodiversity and the wider environment, and the potential to generate additional income.
