S5W-11576: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 27 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many agroforestry grants have been awarded each year by the Forestry Grant Scheme, and what the total amount awarded under the category each year has been.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 25 October 2017

To date, two agroforestry applications have been submitted through the Forestry Grant Scheme. Both schemes were subsequently withdrawn and therefore no grant money for agroforestry has been awarded. Efforts continue to engage with the agricultural sector to promote the benefits of agroforestry grants.
