UK Woodland Carbon Code

The Woodland Carbon Code is the voluntary standard for woodland creation projects in the UK which will make claims about the carbon dioxide they sequester. Independent certification to this standard provides assurance and clarity about the carbon savings of these sustainably managed woodlands.
