Past Pre-announcement

Measure 8.5 aims to provide support for the creation of new woodland and the improvement of existing woodland, in order to improve green spaces in the Maltese Islands. Support for the amelioration of existing woodland must be complementary to existing or newly designated management plans, such as Natura 2000 management plans and local plans. This measure will support the cost of forest propagation material, appropriate plant protection systems and the removal of certain non-indigenous trees in order to improve the ecological value of woodlands. 

Beneficiaries that are eligible for support through this measure are natural, public or private bodies including NGOs. In the case of publicly owned land, certain restrictions apply in line with Article 22 of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013.
