5,963 tonnes of CO₂e
- 13.7 hectares. The planting is split into two parcels of 1.4 hectares and 12.3 hectares
- Woodland is expected to capture 5,963 tonnes of carbon over the next 85 years'
- Species mix includes Common Oak, Hornbeam, Lime, Wild Cherry, Hawthorn, Scots Pine, Alder and Walnut
- Aims to restore local ecology and provide better access for the local community
A 13-hectare native broadleaf woodland on the edge of an Essex village capturing just under 6,000 tonnes of carbon and offering both access and a thriving wildlife habitat to the local community.
The species mix for planting includes Common oak (37%), Hornbeam (10%), Lime (10%), Wild cherry (10%), Hawthorn (5%), Scots pine (5%), Alder (5%), Walnut (5%).
Keen to improve their environmental footprint, restore the local ecology and provide better access for the local community, a third generation family-run farm in Essex is converting two of their arable fields into woodland.
The woodland is just 1 hours’ drive from Central London and the woodland owner would welcome corporate visits and onsite events to showcase his tree planting efforts and his wider environmental efforts across the farm. They are looking to sell 100% of the carbon credits. Due to the high quality of this project, offers are expected in excess of £28 per PIU.
Planting was completed in late 2022 and the project is currently undergoing validation by the Woodland Carbon Code, with PIUs expected to be issued and available for sale by March 2023.
