Forest owners can generate annual revenue through our tailored lease solutions
Forest Carbon Leasing
We lease the carbon in a forest whether it has been planted to harvest or remain as a permanent forest.
It’s then up to you to decide whether to harvest the trees at their optimum age or to continue operating as a permanent carbon sink forest after the lease ends.
If you decide to harvest your forest, we can take care of any liabilities under the Emissions Trading Scheme, so long as you replant the forest within the period specified.
How does it work
We pay a guaranteed annual income to you, the forest owner for the duration of the lease.
The rental is adjusted annually in line with the CPI.
We own the carbon sequestered by the forest.
As long as the land is replanted in terms of the requirements of the ETS legislation then you’ll have no obligation to pay back the Carbon Credits under the Emissions Trading Scheme. We manage this “surrender risk” through a process called “Averaging” under the Emissions Trading Scheme.
