A reforestation and afforestation project involves planting forest trees in agricultural areas. In doing so, the project helps to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas entering the atmosphere, as carbon remains stored in the trees while they grow (referred to as ‘carbon stock’). Net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as a result of a project is referred to as ‘net abatement’.

Afforestation projects can be simple to implement, but it can be good to check out groups like the WA Landcare Network and Plant Trees Australia to figure out the appropriate vegetation and guides to ensure success.
