Forest roads are essential to develop sustainable access to your forest as it matures. A grant which covers approximately 80% of construction costs, is offered to allow a high standard of road to be built and developed into the plantation. A single consent system is in place which requires an engineers report to accompany some roads. This scheme is administered by DAFM
