You may have received your SWGS offer letter or eagerly awaiting it over the next month or so, but when you do, what do you do next?

Here is a Top 10 guide to navigating the planting season.

  1. Carefully read though your offer letter, ensuring you have the right field and correct length of fencing
  2. Accept the offer letter "On Line" via Gov Gateway - you only have 14 days to do this or it will expire
  3. If you are self planting, order your trees and guards now to ensure supply - click through to IndiWoods Tree Shop for all your needs.  Trees are in bundles of 50 so round up or down.
  4. To guard or not to guard? If you have rabbits or hares, I strongly recommend you guard as they can do a lot of damage and you will be required to re stock any failures.  Guards also give your trees a boost.
  5. Think about weeding - spot spray, hand weeding or mulching - the forest service  expect you to weed your trees in the early years.
  6. Think Design - plan your tracks, meandering paths, views, residents, power cables / services, open glades if required - you have up to 20% open space to accommodate this.
  7. Fencing - prepare where this is to go and think about for machinery access in winter months
  8. Ground Preparation - Really important - make sure the land is clear and ready for planting - keep your grass grazed as long as possible and top / mulch rushes whilst the land is dry.  This may not be possible in wetter months.
  9. Dont forget to claim your grant on your SAF form in May.
  10. Alternatively, email your SWGS contract and map to and we will do the whole project for you.
