REGENERATION PROJECTS EXPLAINED
Regeneration carbon farming projects involve managing your land in a way that enables native vegetation to regenerate into forest, for example by modifying grazing systems. The regenerating trees capture carbon in the landscape; this produces carbon credits which can be traded.

REGENERATION PROJECTS IN PRACTICE
Regenerating native forest across Australia
Forecast carbon abatement:
Approximately 400,000 carbon credits between 2016 – 2025
Carbon farming activities:
The project aims to promote the regeneration of native forest across two properties in Western NSW and Queensland. Before the project’s commencement, high grazing pressure caused the depletion of the pastures, causing livestock to graze areas of the native forest instead, suppressing the vegetation and causing erosion.
More sustainable farming practices were adopted to improve the quality of the land and allow regeneration. These include better management of the timing and extent of grazing of livestock, fence upgrades, the installation of water infrastructure, and the humane management of feral goats. These measures have allowed the implementation of a holistic planned grazing regime over the properties that make up the project; spreading existing grazing pressure more evenly and reducing pressure on the areas of native regeneration.
