For those with the luxury of more land, maybe extending beyond a garden into an estate, it’s worth considering the current purpose of that space and whether there is a better way it can be utilised. There is significant capital in your land and soil which could do a lot of work for you with minimal effort.
Global warming, from the carbon we have released into our atmosphere, has reached a critical point where it is essential that we not only stop polluting, but also start sequestering gases we have already released. Tree planting is the most effective solution to this and carries multiple other benefits such as flood prevention, supporting new and existing ecosystems, preventing soil erosion and creating new active spaces for human wellbeing. Not-for-profit organisations such as the Forest Canopy Foundation have been formed to bring together landowners with investors and environmentalists. If you have the space for tree planting, but not the capital, FCF find investors to pay for the planting and maintenance of woodland on your land. The expert environmentalists behind FCF are at the forefront of defining how we save our planet whilst also ensuring financial viability in the process. This increases your land value as well as providing future income via timber production, carbon credits and game and wildlife management revenue.
