As a private forest owner, you can apply for various subsidies to carry out a range of forestry works. We advise you on the application process for subsidies: we let you know when to apply for different types of subsidies and help you fill in the necessary documents.
As a member of Metsaühistu, you also have an advantage when applying for subsidies. Many subsidies can only be applied for through the local forest owners’ association, and Läänemaa Metsaühistu will do it for you.
