Trees and the climate crisis

Nov 17, 2021

If you are interested in learning more about the role trees will play in helping us get to Net-Zero emissions, then this is the episode for you.

It's an interview with Jamie Heather, who you may remember from an earlier episode we shared on donating to fight the climate crisis.

This podcast will provide you with a high-level introduction to forestry and its impact on the climate crisis, along with an explanation of the ETS (Emissions Trading Scheme) and some of the opportunities in the fast-growing carbon farming sector.

We cover various subjects including the differences between native trees and exotics, the ETS and voluntary carbon markets, the power of forestry to sequester carbon compared to other methods and much, much more!
