      Habitat creation and restoration

      Land unfit for development can often yield ecological benefits that go some way towards achieving your Net Zero targets.

      We’ve helped Oxbridge colleges and large, nationally significant estates identify areas for tree planting, habitat creation and connectivity – crucial to alleviating the climate crisis.

      With our understanding of land values and ecology, we take a strategic view of rural estates and portfolios to identify opportunities for creating and expanding habitats of ecological value on land constrained from other uses.   

      Landowners committed to reducing emissions, improving carbon sequestration and biodiversity on their estate may consider gaining advice from our specialists on a range of possible interventions, such as woodland creation, peatland restoration, flood attenuation and biodiversity net gain.  

      We conduct feasibility studies and cost analysis to assess the viability and estimated ecological success of habitat schemes, before developing delivery mechanisms including appropriate funding options, engagement with local authorities, and negotiating contractual structures – whether between landowner and tenant, or with third parties such as wildlife management organisations.

      Improving the biodiversity on your land doesn’t have to mean leaving farming behind – making smart changes on your estate can have real ecological benefits.
