SFGS Forest Plans Edit
This dataset identifies Forest Plans approved during the Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme 2003-2006. Forest Plans aim to deliver long-term environmental benefits through sustainable forest management and consists of a strategic plan over a 20 year period. Forest Plans were introduced for landowners planning to carry out felling, restocking and thinning in their woodlands. Forestry Commission Scotland provided a grant to help prepare a plan (Plan Preparation Grant) and owners could claim restocking grants set at the same rate as the Woodland Grant Scheme (1999 - 2003) or Scottish Forestry Grant Scheme (2003 - 2006). Once the plan was approved, a Forest Plan contract provided felling and restocking approval for 10 years. Forest Plans (SFGS) were closed to new applications in December 2006.
