Growing trees capture and store atmospheric carbon. One quarter of a living tree’s weight is carbon: this remains locked safely away until the tree is either burned or decomposes.
The cost per tonne of Woodland Carbon depends on several factors including where the trees are to be planted, scale, and whether or not you wish to have additional benefits such as customer or staff engagement.
The Woodland Carbon Code provides reassurance to our customers, consultants, brokers and investors. Administered by the Forestry Commission and developed by them in conjunction with DEFRA and the Woodland Trust
As awareness of climate change has grown so the need to reduce emissions of the green house gases which have caused it, of which CO2 is the most dominant, has also been recognised.
