Vegetation Carbon Methodologies
This carbon method holds the most potential from a financial, environmental and social perspective to most landholders and all parties involved.
Vegetation projects (using tree species that grow over 2 metres in height) generate carbon credits by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it as carbon in the soil and vegetation biomass.
To become eligible for a vegetation project, a change of management is required. Some examples of management changes could include (but not limited to) the following:
- Rotational/planned grazing (destocking/restocking)
- Resting paddocks for given lengths of time
- Fire management improvement
- Improved fencing infrastructure (such as kangaroo fencing/increased pest management)
- Improved protection of biodiversity and areas of high ecological value
Some examples of vegetation project methods could include:
- Protecting native forest at risk of clearing
Please note that there are many various methods that will impact your eligibility for a vegetation carbon project and it is recommended you engage a carbon farming professional to undertake an assessment for further eligibility analysis.
