Tweed Forum Single Purchase Offsets

One-Off Purchases

You may wish to make a one-off commitment; perhaps to offset some recent flights you've taken, or maybe to deal with the emissions from your car journeys for the year. No matter the reason, you can start supporting the creation of carbon-capturing woodlands below!

To give you an indication of the emissions associated with some common activities, the purchase of two carbon credits - i.e. two tonnes of CO2 mitigation - would be needed for one passenger to offset a single long haul flight, or for two passengers to offset a return flight to Central Europe, or for an average UK car-user to offset their road-related emissions for one year.

Rates vary but, on average, across all of Forest Carbon's projects, one tonne of carbon offset enables the planting of four trees. Projects are certified under the Forestry Commission’s Woodland Carbon Code.

If you are unsure about your exact carbon footprint and would like some help to get a more accurate estimate, please contact us and we will be able to assist you. Thank you for making such an important contribution to the welfare of our planet and the creation of valuable new woodlands in the United Kingdom!

Where our
projects are

Forest Carbon leads the way in developing woodland creation and peatland restoration projects for carbon capture and ecosystem services in the UK. We have planted over 10 million new trees in 200+ new woodlands since 2006 with our partners removing over 2 million tonnes of CO2e from the atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including habitat creation, biodiversity support, flood mitigation, river ecosystem improvement and public access.

Our new woodland schemes spread across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. They are certified by the Woodland Carbon Code – which is supported by the UK government and internationally recognised by ICROA. Planting the ‘right tree in the right place’ is required though adherence to the Forestry Commission standards.

Our peatland schemes can be found in Scotland and Wales. They are certified by the Peatland Code which is supported by the IUCN. These certification codes assure the additionality and permanence of each tonne of carbon stored.
