The projects are independently certified, giving peace of mind about their quality, and there’s the added comfort of knowing that forests do so much more for the environment than simply capturing CO2.
This project consists of two areas of new native woodland and is the second phase of the woodland creation programme at this site. The plantings will become permanent, non-intervention woodlands and will provide a significantly improved landscape and habitat for biodiversity.
