UK Forestry: Carbon Sequestration - True North European Real Estate Partners

Investing in UK forestry alongside a new specialist manager representing a first mover advantage into a strategy designed to support the UK Government’s carbon neutrality by 2050 through carbon sequestration. True North has identified an opportunity to acquire redundant upland farms that had been used predominantly for livestock grazing and create new forests, generating returns through repurposing upland farmland to forestry and obtain government grant funding to reimburse a significant part of the investigation, design, planning, planting and estate works.
