A new opportunity launches today for those of us seeking to contribute to a cleaner, greener, low carbon economy. CarbonStore will be utilising its unique partnerships to unite landowners, who are looking to sell woodland generated carbon units, with companies that are keen to offset their carbon emissions. The objective being to provide a woodland-based carbon offsetting service that is unique not only in the strong partnerships it enjoys, but the benefits it offers its clients and its trustworthy ethics.
CarbonStore will bring professionalism, transparency and many years of experience in woodland creation to the woodland carbon market, helping to create and nurture the very best woodlands that we can all enjoy and that will maximise the benefits for both companies and landowners.
CarbonStore is a business division of Tilhill. Both are part of BSW – the UK’s largest integrated forestry group. It is through these associations that those looking to enter the fast moving carbon sequestration market now have a highly experienced, and already well respected, company to turn to. CarbonStore’s special relationships will benefit everyone wishing to offset their carbon emissions.
In partnership with CarbonStore are both Maelor Forest Nurseries, the UK’s most progressive commercial tree nursery and also part of the BSW Group, and Tilhill, with over 70 years’ experience of creating and growing new woodlands and forests. Together they grow the tree seeds, design the new woodland creation schemes, plant the saplings, manage the trees and sell the carbon units. One billion trees have already been planted through this partnership over the years and counting.
CarbonStore will also be offering landowners the opportunity to use the CarbonStore website to openly market their woodland carbon, enabling them to secure an equitable price for their woodland carbon that is potentially free of any charges too. This offers market leading value for landowners while also securing an honest price for companies whilst helping them maximise the virtues of their carbon offsetting ambitions.
The CarbonStore Team is led by David McCulloch who has a BSc (Hons) in Accounting, Finance and Economics and 18 years’ experience in the financial sector based in London and Tokyo, initially as an equity salesman and latterly as a corporate analyst. Opportunities within Tilhill and now CarbonStore have enabled David to return to his rural roots in southern Scotland.
David is supported by Andy Baker MICFor, who has a BSc (Hons) in Ecology and Environmental Science and gained his wide ranging forestry experience within Tilhill with carbon sequestration having been the driver of his forestry career. Andy also represents the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) on the Woodland Carbon Code Advisory Board.
Together, the CarbonStore Team has powerful credentials and is in an unrivalled position to advise and guide our clients, in the most open and honest manner, on all woodland generated carbon matters. Our experience unites to enable us to deliver viable, credible schemes, ensuring that your carbon offsetting journey from start to finish is a smooth and enjoyable one.
