Woodland creation for carbon capture

We support the creation new woodlands in the UK for organisations wanting to mitigate the impact of their greenhouse gas emissions and make a contribution to wider environmental benefit. These are companies who already avoid and reduce their emissions as far as they can, and want to finish the job by capturing the remaining balance.

So far, together with our partners, we have planted over 9.0 million trees in the UK, in woodlands independently audited and certified under the UK Woodland Carbon Code – the government backed standard that offers corporate partners complete assurance about the high quality of their carbon investment.

In addition to capturing CO2 a UK woodland also delivers other local and tangible benefits for biodiversity, landscape, flood management, water quality and recreation. Businesses committing to improve the fabric of the planet and the country in this way report only positive outcomes from staff, customers and other stakeholders.

And how do you do it? Simple: Forest Carbon handles everything, just get in touch.

Whether a partner wants to capture one tonne of CO2 or thousands we can help. If you care about the environment, your business and our future then woodland creation is the only thing for it.

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.
