Our forests

Forests influence the climate by absorbing substantial amounts of CO2, enhancing biodiversity, and contributing to combat climate change. They also serve as habitats for diverse flora and fauna, enhancing soil quality. Human management practices play a crucial role in shaping and preserving forests.

Our goal is to promote the growth of healthy forests through near-natural forestry practices and by carefully managing or limiting human intervention. This approach eliminates the practice of regular tree felling, thereby retaining stored CO2 within the trees. We implement selective maintenance measures to thin out stands, fostering the growth of individual trees, allowing them to become larger and more robust.

Over time, forests biodiversity increases through a greater variety of plant and animal species. Additionally, the CO2 sequestered in the process allows for the generation of Voluntary Carbon Offsets in the form of CO2 certificates.

OUR PROJECT FORESTS

Let the woods grow old and transform them into thriving ecosystems.

The land we manage covers approximately 70,000 acres - the equivalent of about 16,000 football fields. 

 

To monitor the forest development, we use laser scanning technology. This enables us to create detailed three-dimensional images of the forests, capturing important data such as the biomass of the trees (e.g. crowns and leaves). By regularly repeating these scans, we can closely track the evolution of forests over time.  

After documenting the forests, we calculate their CO2 storage capacity, adhering to the globally acknowledged guidelines set by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Through the evaluation of various scenarios, we identify optimal management techniques that will maximize CO2 storage in the forests in the coming years.

The CO2 certificates we produce are derived from the additional CO2 sink capacity generated by our management practices. In essence, we quantify solely the incremental amount of CO2 that the forests can absorb due to our near-natural management approach.
