Who is eligible to apply
Businesses are invited to partner with Government and private landowners in creating these diverse woodland habitats.
Rate of payment
WEF funding is a once off single payment of €1,000/hectare, paid by the business to the landowner. The payment is made once the forest is established and has been approved by the Department.
How to apply
Businesses must lodge a WEF-1 form to the NCF of their choice (see NCF register) declaring their interest in the fund
