Economic support

The rural development program can provide financial support for seedlings and planting of Salix and Populus on farmland. Financial support can also be given for fencing to wildlife if needed. However, applications are processed by the county administrative boards and there may be regional restrictions on activities supported.

The investment must amount to at least 50 000 SEK in order to get support and up to 40% of eligible costs can be compensated. The cost is calculated based on templates:
• seedlings and planting, as well as additional expenses associated with the preparation of sites for production: 14 500 SEK per hectare
• fencing: 25 000 SEK per hectare
