Restored ecosystems have the capacity to function as high-quality carbon sinks for which carbon credits can be obtained. Australia is well positioned for the establishment of such biodiverse carbon plantings due to the large extent of marginal agricultural land in need of repair. Combining quantifiable carbon credits with ecological restoration plantings is our core strength.
Peer reviewed scientific research and years of in-field measurements allow us to make carbon yield assessments for each potential site, including estimations of the carbon carrying capacities and predicted growth rates of replanted vegetation.
Through the development of allometric equations we can estimate the carbon sequestration capacity of different vegetation types as they occur in Western Australia. The full results of this carbon research have been published in The Australian Journal of Botany (2011, 59, pp. 639–652).
