Why commit land for trees – things to consider
What are your motives for considering woodland planting (financial/emotional/environmental/other)?
Are there other uses for the land that may be more beneficial and better support your motives?
How is the land is currently used, and what are the benefits of this compared to woodland?
Are there any existing land designations, and what would be the impact of tree planting on these?
What type of woodland do you want to plant (timber, carbon, biodiversity)?
What is the size of the area of land available for planting?
