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.
Regarded as ‘architects of the forested landscape’, our highly specialised team identifies opportunities with real growth potential, then helps purchase and manage that asset for you.
We help clients find bespoke climate solutions, creating investable projects that deliver genuine climate mitigation and generate certified carbon credits.
Biodiversity Net Gain for Landowners
An opportunity for landowners is arising from new planning rules requiring developers to improve biodiversity lost through building schemes.
Biodiversity Net Gain in Development
Having a credible biodiversity plan for your scheme is becoming integral to securing planning permission and maximising end values.
Restoring our peatlands is one of the most effective natural climate solutions at our disposal and we have the expertise to deliver projects at scale.
A deep-rooted understanding of landscape-scale economic and environmental drivers allows our forestry experts to deliver the complete woodland creation service.
Generating Carbon Credits for Landowners
We are helping landowners across the UK generate certified carbon credits and enabling the delivery of genuine climate mitigation projects.
Sustainable Farm Management
We work with you to identify how you can enhance the productivity of your land to ensure you maintain profitability whilst protecting the biodiversity your base resources depend on.
