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.
Join us on for an interactive session with Senior Forestry Consultant Ben Law, where he will attempt to shed some light on this complex and topical subject.
- 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?
