The Benefits

With a Forest Carbon woodland two groups of people benefit: your organisation, and the rest of the world. That's everyone.

What you get with your Forest Carbon Woodland

What everyone else gets with your Forest Carbon Woodland

The publication of the Forestry Commission’s Read Report at the end of 2009 affirmed the importance of UK forests to the general health of our environment.  Referring in particular to a tree's ability to sequester CO2 the report states that:

forestry can make a significant and cost-effective contribution to meeting the UK’s challenging emissions reduction targets.

A carbon woodland has many benefits

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.
