Planning ETS forest land

If you are planning to establish or purchase a new forest, it’s a good idea to think about whether registering it into the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) could work for you. The ETS enables you to earn New Zealand Units for your carbon storage, but there are also obligations and risks to consider before you register.

Choose the right tree for your site

Trees work well when integrated into the landscape to complement and diversify existing land uses. Tree planting needs to be well planned by considering the long-term maintenance and end-use of the trees. If on farms, then take a whole farm approach and look at your land’s potential, water resources, environmental factors and terrain.
