Woodland Carbon Guarantee

Help accelerate woodland planting rates and develop the domestic market for woodland carbon in the form of verified carbon credits, called Woodland Carbon Units (WCUs), to the government for a guaranteed price every 5 or 10 years up to 2055/56. 

This isn't a grant or loan scheme for planting but enables accepted landowners and farmers to sell WCUs to the government every 5 or 10 years up to 2055/56. The government will buy the WCUs for an agreed guaranteed price index-linked for the life of the contract. You can still choose to sell the carbon credits on the open market at any time.
