A 27 hectare mixed broadleaf woodland, 50 miles north of central London in the Hertfordshire countryside. The woodland is expected to capture 9,412 tonnes of carbon over the next 75 years.
The species planting mix is made up of Alder (21%), Oak (12.5%), Hornbeam (12.5%), Silver birch (5%), Wild cherry (5%), Willow (5%), Hawthorn (5%), Poplar (5%).
Using woodland creation, the owner is seeking both to enhance the land’s ecology and also to provide a corridor connecting existing wildlife habitats. Part of the woodland surrounds a freshwater pond for which the trees will provide shade and food for the trout. With such a mixed and varied species mix, the woodland is expected to harbour a particularly abundant wildlife habitat.
The woodland is highly accessible, being situated within easy reach of central London. The owner is looking to sell 100% of the carbon credits and offers are expected in excess of £28 per PIU.
Planting was completed in late 2022 and the woodland is currently being validated by the Woodland Carbon Code with the PIUs expected to be issued in summer 2023.
