Located on a farm in Fife, Scotland, Saline Hill is a native woodland creation project planted and validated between 2018-2021. A mixture of species—including Alder, Downy Birch, Hawthorn, Hazel, Oak, Rowan, Silver Birch, and Willow—have been carefully selected and planted to ensure the new woodland provides a rich and diverse habitat for local wildlife. Given its situation in a predominantly agricultural part of the country, the project represents an important contribution to increasing the overall connectivity of surrounding woodland habitats in the area. Its non-intervention management scheme has also been designed to leave areas of open ground, allowing walkers to access the woodland and use rides to enjoy the space and shelter it provides. Forest Carbon is a developer focusing on woodland creation and peatland restoration projects for carbon capture and ecosystem services in the United Kingdom. Working with businesses and land holders since 2006, they've helped fund the planting of over 13 million trees and the restoration of 2,000 hectares of degraded peatlands. These projects will remove 3.3 million tonnes of CO2e from the atmosphere, whilst providing a host of important benefits to society including flood mitigation, enhanced biodiversity, and increased public access. Critical to this has been their role in supporting the development of certification standards—the Woodland Carbon Code and the Peatland Code—which underpin the integrity of the UK carbon market. Note: Credits certified by the Woodland Carbon Code (WCC) can only be used by UK-registered companies to claim compensation for emissions while complying with WCC regulations. Under an Ex Ante crediting scheme, the Woodland Carbon Code Pending Issuance Units (PIUs) are held in the UK Land Carbon Registry. Every 10 years, projects are checked and, if performing well, verified. At each of these points, PIUs delivered are converted to Woodland Carbon Units (WCUs). Read more here. For this project, WCUs will be converted from approximately 2026 to 2071.
