We are absolutely committed to supporting and funding tree planting in Wales and we are confident that uptake of the woodland creation element in our Glastir Woodlands Scheme will continue to increase in the next Rural Development Programme period.
We are currently consulting on the future of our agri-environment schemes and on the final proposal for the Wales Rural Development Programme.
We worked closely with the Woodland Trust in drafting proposals for this consultation to ensure that their views were reflected and are very grateful for their contribution.
