About the Project

he 5,712ha project area, contained on 14 properties within the Central and Northern Agricultural Regions of Western Australia, is on land previously cleared for dryland cropping and grazing.
The Company planted over 6,000,000 native mallee species (eucalyptus Kochii) trees in 2009 and 2010, and on registration under the Carbon Farming Initiative and then Emissions Reduction Fund it committed to the maintenance of the project forest for a minimum 100 years. The project is registered to continue producing ACCUs until 2039.
The Company’s property rights to sequestered carbon are enshrined by: Carbon Rights; Carbon Covenants; and Tree Plantation Agreements.


Project Co-Benefits

The regions that contain the project areas are recognised as significantly over-cleared, and the reforestation is: providing protective habitat for native flora and fauna; reducing wind and water erosion; in some cases reducing soil salinity; and some cases providing a useful environment for sheep and honey bees.
