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 145+ new woodlands in the UK since 2006 our partners’ projects are removing over 1,900,000 tonnes of CO2 from the global 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.
