Vegetation Regeneration

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:

  • ¬†Reforestation
  • Revegetation/planting
  • 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.
