Caption: Protected sapling in Sand Martin Wood in Faugh near Carlisle, Cumbria, UK, was acquired by the carbon offset company co2balance in September 2006. It has been planted with a broad mix of native trees over 6 hectares and is managed for wildlife as well as the companies offset clients. Though seen as controversial by some carbon offsetting is one way of a company or individual to reduce their emissions, as the trees absorb and sequestrate carbon as they grow. This shot shows a plaque with information about the person who requested the offset by planting a tree.
