Plant for the future to produce income as well as sequester carbon and help combat climate change.
The UK has a target to plant 30000 hectares of new woodland each year. Although the bulk of woodland creation is currently in Scotland it is hoped new planting will increase to 10000 hectares per year in England and 4000 hectares per year in Wales.
Agricultural subsidies are proposed to change now the UK has left the European Union with a greater emphasis on the delivery of environmental benefits. Planting grants, combined with opportunities to sell sequestered carbon, present an exciting opportunity to diversify farming businesses and generate a new income stream.
