Forest Carbon at Sarah's Wood

Forest Carbon at Sarah's Wood

Sarah’s Wood is a new native woodland creation which has been sited next to existing woodland. It was formally land that was used for agricultural purposes, primarily silage cutting, so it will extend the existing woodland. This increased habitat will be beneficial to local biodiversity such as red squirrels and various forms of birdlife.

The carbon sequestration that this woodland will provide was also an important reason for the planting to go ahead, and it will sequester a significant amount of carbon over its lifetime. Carbon finance was vital for this project as without it the project would not have gone ahead.

An additional benefit of this planting is the amenity value it provides to the local community.
