The Woodland Trust aims to double native woodland cover in the UK, which is currently one of the least wooded countries in Europe. Carbon finance can make a huge contribution to this aspiration but only once the regulatory framework is correct.

We support the Woodland Carbon Code (see www.forestry.gov.uk/carboncode) and our woodland creation project in the Eden Valley, Cumbria is registered as one of the first (and largest) projects in the scheme.
