The Clyde Climate Forest will see 18 million trees planted in both urban and rural parts of Glasgow City Region over the next decade.

Trees, woodlands and forests are recognised as essential if we are to address the Climate Crisis by reducing damaging atmospheric emissions and are crucial to assist in a recovery for nature.

The Clyde Climate Forest (CCF) spans Glasgow City Region and has been endorsed by the Council Leaders of East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire. We are identifying tree planting targets in three areas: canopy; connectivity and carbon.

As part of a programme of work to promote woodland creation within the CCF,Scottish Forestry is offering a limited number of free Farm Woodland Assessments to help farms and estates identify opportunities for new woodland planting to support their farm businesses. This independent assessment will help businesses to identify opportunities to maximise business productivity and sustainability, by adding value to underproductive/marginal land through tree planting.  

If you would like to register your interest in a free farm woodland assessment please complete the short online Pre-Assessment Survey Questionnaire by 5pm on Friday 28 October 2022. Assessments will be carried out between December 2022 and March 2023.
