What we do

Forest Carbon

Since 2006 Forest Carbon has been creating new woodlands in the UK on behalf of companies and individuals wanting to capture the unavoidable carbon dioxide emissions that arise from their activities, and make a wider contribution to local environments and communities at the same time. With expertise in forestry, carbon markets and woodland carbon methodologies, Forest Carbon is the country’s leading developer of voluntary carbon woodland schemes certified under the Woodland Carbon Code.

The Woodland Carbon Code delivers externally verified projects, certified by UKAS accredited bodies to ISO standards, that offer tangible social and environmental benefits; it is the only standard of its kind in the UK. The Code ensures that:

The story so far

Where our
woodlands are

Forest Carbon leads the way in voluntary carbon woodland creation in the UK. Through the planting of over 7.0 million new trees in 130+ new woodlands in the UK since 2006 our partners’ projects are removing over 1,400,000 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.
