As a plantation forester, you know the huge potential of a well-managed estate. This potential now includes the opportunity for foresters to contribute to a greener, low-carbon future – while at the same time taking advantage of a valuable new income source.
In addition to the many ecological benefits of restoring the landscape, carbon stored over time in growing forests and harvested wood products is prevented from entering the atmosphere and contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.
Plantation forestry projects enable estate managers to help reduce emissions by converting short rotation plantations to long rotation plantations, or by developing new plantations, resulting in more carbon storage in the planted trees and harvested wood products.
Developing carbon farming projects could help your business clear your investment capital hurdles, contribute to the expansion of the forestry sector and support the development of communities in the regions you operate in.
