We provide nursery trees with a carbon efficiency rating so that specifiers can make more informed choices.
Our carbon performance certificates provide each tree in your nursery catalogue with an efficiency rating (A-E), according to its carbon performance.
The efficiency rating directly relates to the amount of carbon absorbed by the species in question, ‘A’ indicating the greatest absorption potential. The certificate also shows how long it will take before the tree will offset the carbon it took to grow, deliver and plant it.
Armed with a carbon rating, each tree is comparable to other trees and shrubs in your nursery catalogue, giving those charged with specifying tree species, clear data with which to make decisions.
This approach can assist local authorities to work towards carbon reduction targets. Carbon capture is not the only benefit that trees offer, but it is the one that can make a real difference to achieving net zero ambitions.
