Woodland also has an important role to play in offsetting CO2 emissions as it acts as a “carbon sink”, absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere as the trees grow. Even after our emissions have been reduced woodland will go on reducing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Permanent woodland areas have an important role in stabilising valley sides, reducing the rate of run-off into streams, providing habitat for birds, wildlife corridors and screening footpaths, recreation areas, etc. If you have areas of land that would be suited to these aims we would like to hear from you.
If you live locally and would like to get involved in an exciting project to ensure Malhamdale’s future as a thriving, sustainable community, we are looking for people with vision and enthusiasm to carry this project forward.
We have setup a brief survey, please complete to help us understand our current carbon footprint and the potential reduction we can achieve. Click Here to take survey
