Women in Agriculture, Borders: Selling Carbon and Creating Woodland


Carbon sales from woodland are rapidly becoming a valuable source of income for farmers. Given that sales can be combined with existing FGS grant support, carbon sales are now being seen as viable method of diversifying business income streams and have the potential to make small scale tree planting feasible.

It is therefore important that as farmers, we have some understanding of the options available for our businesses.

We will be joined by SAC Consulting Senior Forestry Consultant Ben Law, who will attempt to summarise this often complex topic and answer your questions:

  • What is carbon selling?
  • How does it work?
  • What options are available for small scale plantings?
  • What does the future look like for carbon sales going forward?

Join us on Thursday 12th August at 14:00 for an interactive session with Ben, where he will attempt to shed some light on this complex and topical subject.
