Tree planting, and the creation of woodland, will contribute significantly to the fight against climate change and support delivery of the government’s 25-Year Environment Plan through carbon sequestration. However, there are a multitude of additional benefits to the environment – these include:


the totality of relations between organisms and their environment

Habitats for game, birds and wildlife

Attracting pollinators

Shade and shelter for livestock


the circumstances, objects, or conditions by which one is surrounded

Reducing soil erosion and slowing water run-off

Improving water quality and drainage

Mitigating pollution and developing air cleanliness


the welfare of human beings as members of society

Health, nutritional and mental wellbeing benefits

Enhanced beauty, heritage and engagement with the natural environment

Place for recreation and learning


the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services

Income from timber

Carbon credits

Revenue from game and wildlife management
