MANAGE A FOREST IN A NATURAL WAY
FOR AN EFFICIENT AND DURABLE STORAGE OF CARBON
From the branches to the roots, a tree is capable of capitalising the carbon in the long term with a responsible management of the forests.
If the clean cut of trees causes a fast regenaration of the forest, the soil erosion that follows causes a loss of carbon contained in the ground that elevates itself in the atmosphere in a matter of years. However, the method of cut by sampling helps to get better results.
By respecting the age and diversity of species, studies have shown that carbon stays stuck in the humus, the soil and the roots…. In the long term, the root system can contain 30% to 100% of additional carbon. Containing organic elements, it consists of the first source of energy for vegetals; an essential part of biodiversity.
AN EFFICIENT STORAGE OF CARBON
However, since continuous and natural forestry does not need any plantation, as it regenerates automatically, the added value is even greater for the method.
A BIODIVERSITY RESPECTED
This type of management also enables to minimise the risks of forest fire as well as the risks of natural disasters.
Finally, a continuously managed natural forest enables the development of its ecohydrological system by offering a better filtration, absorption and purification of the water.
AN ECONOMICAL AND ECOLOGICAL IMPACT
The gathering of the wood requires a larger labour force as well as modern and light equipment. It requires the foundation of a precise process and is carefully monitored (individual's choice of exploitability, frequency of passage…)
Convinced that forest management can come to terms with economical and social goals, the method of forestry imposed by Carbon Forest offers a wood production of high quality and therefore with high value. With a large diameter, the latter is used for the construction of objects.
Carbon is then capitalised in the long term in the transformed materials. In addition, by investing locally, you increase the economical value of the forest, contribute to a greener transition and participate in a citizen act for nature.
A LOCAL IMPACT
Which ever type of company you have, Carbon Forest is capable of finding a corresponding forest for you.
This way, to balance your carbon footprint becomes a concrete possibility. Companies that operate at a local level are closer to the forests that surrounds them.
It enables the companies to take control over unavoidable issues in our society. Finally, by investing locally, the impact of Carbon Forest enables a more circular economy.
