How we deliver extra income for land owners

With the new Environmental Land Management Schemes (ELMS), the time has never been better to look at ways to earn extra income from your land through tree-planting and habitat creation.

1

2

We advise the right management options

for your specified land

3

We find developer projects that fit your land use

4

We find grants and help you manage the project

5

You receive an upfront fee and annual payment

Guiding you through the process every step of the way

1. Register your land

All you need to do initially is let us know the size and current state of the land you wish to put into conservation (see form below). Please note that all information submitted is strictly confidential and there is no obligation to take up any offset agreement at this stage.

2. Choose the right management options

We can advise on the options of woodland, wetland rewilding or existing habitat enhancement. We then assess the range of environmental goods and the payments/grants associated with a particular project. These might include carbon sequestration, wetland creation, peat restoration, river catchment management or biodiversity gain.

3. Find a suitable business or project

We match your land with a suitable buyer for any potential carbon or biodiversity units generated. In the case of biodiversity offset we liaise with local planning authorities and developers and when a project comes up that is a fit for your land, we will contact you to discuss a matching management plan.

4. Delivery and long-term revenue

Once we have designed a plan to the satisfaction of all parties we can help you deliver it. This could include securing agri-environment grants, arranging biodiversity assessments, sourcing and planting trees, landscaping, fencing or implementing a range of conservation measures.

5. Biodiversity offset

In the case of biodiversity offset, once you have approved the management plan and payment, we arrange the agreement between you and the developer. You then receive an upfront fee to commence the work and an annual payment for implementing the long-term management plan. We can help with ongoing maintenance and securing any necessary certification.
