If you are in London and if you are quick, your golf club may be able to benefit from grant funding for conservation management projects.
The Forestry Commission, Groundwork London and the Mayor of London are working together to improve the trees and woodland resource throughout London.
The Forestry Commission's Community Grant Scheme offers grants to local authorities, community groups, businesses, and woodland owners and managers, who want to improve their local treescape within London.
Grants are awarded to projects across a wide variety of categories including those that aim to improve biodiversity, engage the community, regenerate local areas, carry out tree and woodland management and a number of other areas. Grants tend to be for between £500 and £5,000.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 6th November.
