Coetiroedd Bach (Tiny Forests)

The Coetiroedd Bach Grant will create 100 ‘Tiny Forests’ between April 2023 and the end of March 2025. It is part of the National Forest for Wales programme.

With 5 Tiny Forests created as a pilot in 2020, this new scheme with £2.62 million funding opened on 3 April. We are funding the scheme, and the National Heritage Lottery Fund will deliver it on our behalf.

This scheme will provide financial support for people to create Tiny Forests. These woodlands will have the potential to be part of the National Forest network in the future. This means woodlands that:

  • are well-managed
  • are accessible to people
  • give local communities the opportunity to get involved in woodlands and nature

Closing date: 8 May 2024
