Carbon Farming Guide

The Carbon Farming Guide focuses on the significant potential of tree plantations to sequester carbon, a critical component in the fight against climate change. It outlines options for farmers to either sell or retain the carbon credits generated by their plantations.

The guide is timely, given the increasing interest in ‘net zero’ farms and the potential to enter new markets for products originating from such farms. It highlights the parts of Gippsland that are particularly well-suited for tree farming due to favourable rainfall and soil conditions.

Beyond carbon sequestration, the guide also explores the additional benefits that these trees can provide, including potential income from timber and other farm benefits, such as shelter for livestock and enhanced biodiversity.
