UK: POTENTIAL PITFALLS

WHICH CAN BE AVOIDED WITH HIGHLAND CARBON

Whilst there are some other tree planting opportunities available in the UK it is important to understand the risks, relative cost and the different outputs.

The other tree planting groups in the UK fall generally into the following:

  • plantations in the tropics with associated risks

  • individual trees and copses in cities with a high carbon price point

  • linear rows of trees on costly UK arable and grazing land -- tree farms rather than habitat restoration -- and with a high carbon price point (see top photo)

  • genuine conservation, however, via small woods in dozens of dispersed locations, without economies of scale, without landscape scale habitat impacts and again with a relatively high price point

  • nature and environmental charities actively undertaking climate campaigning whilst  protesting and lobbying against infrastructure projects and may thus:

  1. rule out working in certain sectors

  2. complicate partnership PR and Comms

  3. feature a high carbon price point

Highland Carbon does not undertake climate campaigning.  We do not set limits on the scope of our PR/communications support.  In fact we offer robust content, inspiring images and regular updates.
