Measuring Woodland Carbon

Carbon Baseline Scenario - Predicting changes to the carbon stock of the site if we weren't planting the woodland (the 'business as usual' scenario)

Carbon Leakage - Accounting for greenhouse gas emissions outside the project boundary which are a direct result of the project

Project Carbon Sequestration - Predicting the carbon sequestration of a new woodland over time

Monitoring  - Verifying carbon sequestration predictions with regular field surveys

Carbon statements and reporting - Making claims about carbon sequestration
