The Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) will be the post Brexit grant in England that replaces the Countryside Stewardship scheme. This study is part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) Tests and Trials programme. During the trial period funded by Defra until the end of 2021, Small Woods will investigate ways to bring more small woods back into management and what will enable more small woods to benefit from the ELM grant scheme.
