Offsetting Projects

We have decided upon a very attractive project in Cardeston just a few miles south of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, where we are planting some 20,000 Natural Broadleaved Trees.

This block of woodland will be at a position 050°41.4'N - 002°53.6'W and is adjacent to an existing old woodland named Cardeston Old Wood (COW for short!).  Upon completion it will have a selection of Oaks, Ash, Cherry and Beech being the main trees to produce the canopy of leaves for carbon dioxide absorption (Info! Sequestration). The woodland has access to the public with rides and tracks and additional areas are being planted up with Hawthorn, Rowan and Silver Birch to encourage birds and wildlife.

In all, a block of woodland designed the be enjoyable but more importantly to absorb as much carbon dioxide COČ from the atmosphere as possible . In our estimation our woodland is designed to absorb Carbon Dioxide (CO2) at a rate in excess of 2000 tonnes per hectare over the next seventy to one hundred years. This means that a one tonne offset parcel is required and will include two or three trees as an integral part of the overall canopy of woodland.

If you wish to sponsor a tree, or a block of trees, or even offset a one tonne parcel or more ,it will be locatable with your own unique GPS co-ordinate (Global Positioning System). You will receive a certificate (Sample Certificate) showing your sponsorship and it's co-ordinates. So, if you want to visit the woodland or you are in the area, you can go and see for yourself.

The planting and woodland management is overseen by a well known independent company of land agents, Berry Bros www.berrybros.com. They are there to ensure that the trees planted and maintained for optimum performance.

In all, it will be an asset for generations to come, it will help the wildlife and more importantly 'THE WORLD'

Use our Carbon Footprint Calculator to establish your Carbon Footprint!

When you consider that the typical British carbon footprint is 10.92 tonnes per person (Environment Agency) and we need to reduce that by 20% by 2012 and 60% by 2050 we have got a lot to do.

If you wish, you can offset some or all of your emissions here or just sponsor a tree.


The more you choose to offset,
The more trees we will plant.
