Forest Carbon came about from a conversation, a desire to solve a problem and a handshake back in 2006. This was at a time where there were no domestic carbon standards for UK woodland creation or peatland restoration projects. There were also no verified UK nature based solutions projects available to companies to support and there was no mechanism to channel carbon finance to UK nature based solutions projects and landholders.
Our growth, like the trees and peatlands we work with, has been steady but constant, founded on our key principles of integrity and quality. Our existing reach has already spanned the four corners of the United Kingdom with projects that we have supported being located across Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. This was from our team based in Edinburgh and the North East of England. We now however have two team members based in southern England.
James Hepburne Scott, one of our two co-founders, is now based in Wiltshire. Meanwhile, Zennor Pascoe (who joined Forest Carbon towards the end of 2022) is based in central Cornwall. Between them they have bolstered our presence across the South East and South West of England and they are providing a valuable link with both existing and new clients.
While the bulk of our work can be done online, we still wholeheartedly believe in the value of a face-to-face conversation and a handshake. So, we are very pleased to be able to meet with landholders, visit project sites, and explain the practicalities and complexities of carbon projects in person in all locations across the UK.
If you are a landholder or land manager considering a woodland creation or peatland restoration project, or indeed another type of carbon project, we welcome a conversation.
