Our Woodlands and Peatlands

Our Woodlands

The aim of every Forest Carbon partner is the same - whether they're a small business planting a portion of a woodland, or a FTSE listed company planting the whole thing: they want to add to Britain's carbon-sinking tree population, and they want to know everything has been done properly.

Forest Carbon's woodlands are UK government certified: they are backed by the Woodland Carbon Code This means you can be sure that the right trees were planted, in the right way and in the right numbers; that they'll be managed properly; that they'll be monitored; that, however unlikely, problems will be fixed; that biodiversity and habitat have been respected; that the CO2 number we give you is based on sound science and good risk assessment; and, most importantly, it means that we can guarantee that the trees would not have been planted were it not for our intervention on your behalf.

Where our
woodlands are

Forest Carbon leads the way in voluntary carbon woodland creation in the UK. Through the planting of over 7.5 million new trees in 135+ new woodlands in the UK since 2006 our partners’ projects are removing over 1,500,000 tonnes of CO2 from the nation’s atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including flood mitigation, river improvement and public access.

The quality of our schemes is assured by the UK government’s Woodland Carbon Code which certifies our projects in important areas like biodiversity, ‘additionality’, risk management and carbon capture measurement.

Compensating for your unavoidable environmental impact by helping to create a new woodland is rewarding in many ways. Check out our woodland location map and see what trees we’ve planted.
