We’re doing this in the UK. Most offsetting schemes are based abroad and we want to demonstrate that you can make an impact right here.
We’re not just planting trees, we’re buying and protecting the land for the forest so that it doesn’t get cut down unnecessarily. Many offsetting schemes simply rent land and are unable to promise that the trees will have the best chance to grow to maturity.
We are about the ecological impact as much as the carbon offsetting. We’re planting the right mix of native woodland trees, in the right place to join up ecological corridors. Most offsetting projects plant single species with little thought to habitat creation.
