This grant is available to businesses for planting hedges and small woodlands in order to enhance the landscape and benefit wildlife.
Lincolnshire County Council bulk buys on average 40,000 trees each year and through the scheme we will provide hedging plants and woodland trees (including protection) at the actual price the Council paid last year. The grant element is inflation plus the bulk buying discount. As a guide for the winter of 2014-15 one metre of mixed native hedging would cost approximately £1.58 plus VAT
The planting scheme must enhance the landscape and benefit wildlife.
