As every sector looks to decarbonise and become carbon neutral, land holders have a unique opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint through nature-based solutions such as woodland planting and carbon sequestration.
Through carbon sequestration, trees store carbon in biomass above and below ground, effectively and efficiently removing atmospheric carbon and mitigating the effects of climate change.
This makes woodland planting an attractive nature-based solution for land holders and estate managers who are looking to reduce or offset their carbon emissions.
We can offer a robust assessment of the carbon sequestration potential of woodland planting on your site in a way that also measurably improves biodiversity and minimises flood risk.
Using the Woodland Carbon Code (WCC) calculator, a tool developed by the Forestry Commission, we quantify the total tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents that could be sequestered taking into consideration the possible trade-offs between carbon sequestration potential, ecological value enhancement and flood risk protection.
It’s important that the carbon benefit of any woodland planting efforts can be accredited through a recognised scheme such as the WCC. This provides independent verification and safeguards that woodlands are created as planned and will be maintained in the long term.
Our assessments provide the information needed to secure accreditation and enable reporting on Woodland Carbon Units (WCUs) which can be used to claim offset greenhouse gas emissions in company reporting.
In the pursuit of a carbon neutral future, woodland planting can be an effective method to reduce carbon whilst enhancing and future proofing estates.
