The Importance of Carbon in a Climate Emergency

Various presenters on behalf of Forestry and Climate Change Working Group

Free online workshop - Tuesday 20th April at 11.00am

To book your free place click HERE

The Forestry Climate Change Working Group is delighted to announce the launch of a free online workshop for forestry practitioners and will explore the importance of carbon in a climate emergency.

As a result of the UK’s commitment to becoming a Net Zero economy by 2050, carbon sequestration is likely to become a significant additional source of income for landowners looking to enhance their property with woodland creation and can underpin the financial viability of a project. Join FCCWG to find out how you could join the journey to Net Zero and play a part in supporting the drive for woodland creation across the UK:

Join the workshop and find out:

  • How the Woodland Carbon market works in the UK
  • What you need to do to join
  • How to access different parts of the market and find out first-hand from advocates just how attractive it really is
  • Experienced professionals in forest carbon will explain how carbon markets work, how they can get started, and answer questions and concerns from attendees
  • The benefits of conservation and nature as a solution to climate change

Chair - David Edwards, Tilhill, Regional Manager for Wales and soon to be Forestry Director

Andy Baker, Woodland Carbon Code: Woodland Carbon Code Explained

Chris Waterfield, Carbon & Water Advisor, Forestry Commission: Carbon Auctions

David McCulloch, Head of CarbonStore: Carbon Investments

Ilona Coulson-Ashworth, Carbon Projects Manager, Woodland Trust: Nature Based Solutions

Soils cultivation on afforestation sites 

Dr Jens Haufe, Forest Research, on behalf of Forestry and Climate Change Working Group

Foresters know there is a desperate need for a huge increase in afforestation to combat climate change through carbon sequestration.  This webinar is aimed at bolstering the forest industry's technical expertise in one of the most important first steps to achieving this – management of soils.   

This excellent talk was hosted by the RFS on behalf of the FCCWG on 20 January 2021 and repeated due to high demand on 03 February.  You can watch a recording of one of the sessions on the RFS YouTube channel by clicking HERE
