The 8th Glastir Woodland Restoration (GWR) Expression of interest (EOI) window has opened on the 16th March 2020 and will close at midnight on 24 April 2020.

GWR provides capital works for restocking, fencing and associated operations on sites where there is larch and up to 50% non-larch species. This Expression of Interest is available to successful applicants who will be able to complete all capital works and planting by either 31 March 2022 or 31 March 2023.

You’re eligible to submit a Glastir Woodland Restoration (GWR) Expression of Interest (EOI) if you have been issued with a felling licence containing larch, a felling licence application number or a Statutory Plant Health Notice. You must submit your felling licence, felling licence application with number or Statutory Plant Health Notice (SPHN) with your EOI on or before 24 April 2020 for assessment by the Welsh Government. To be eligible for support to replant your woodlands, you must submit a forest management plan for the eligible area to be restocked.
