Forestry subsidies

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 Põhja-Eesti Metsaühistu will do it for you.

For more information and applying get in touch with our specialists.
