Trees for Transition - Working woodlands for a sustainable future

Carbon Accounting for Land Managers

Duncliffe ViewThe Country Land and Business Association have the Carbon Accounting for Land Managers (CALM) tool on their website . This is the first free business-based calculator showing the balance between annual emissions and the key Green House Gases and carbon sequestration associated with land-based activities. The calculator measures emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide from a land-management business and any carbon which is stored in soil and trees.

In particular, the tree element of this tool needs refining to reflect the growing role of trees and woods in carbon management.
