The White Rose Forest (WRF) Community Forest has set out an Action Plan for tree planting and woodland creation across West and North Yorkshire between 2021 – 2025. The UBoC team at the University of Leeds was commissioned by the White Rose Forest to assess how much carbon could potentially be removed from the atmosphere by tree planting across the West and North Yorkshire region. Our report, “Informing a carbon-based tree planting strategy for the White Rose Forest”, lays out the potential carbon sequestration achieved by varying levels of afforestation across the thirteen local authorities that make up the WRF. The report also highlights the important role played by trees outside of woodlands in West and North Yorkshire.

UBoC is pleased to invite you to a webinar to introduce the findings of the report. The speakers will outline the methods used in generating the carbon sequestration data, explore some example calculations from the WRF region, and discuss how the method can be used to help planning for reaching net zero in local authorities. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session.

A recording of the webinar will be made available to attendees afterwards.
