Afforestation is the climate friendliest way to sequester CO2, with high levels of CO2 sequestration and oxygen production. It rapidly sequesters carbon in biomass and the soil. Therefore afforestation is an ideal tool to attain the net-zero emissions goals and fit within the European Green Deal.
Afforestation creates water, holds water in the soil, prevents erosion and regenerates the soil. Trees only have to be planted once for the next 60 to 400 years.
Arvorest’s strategy is based on afforestation with local trees. The soil of the Quinta site has a high potential of storing carbon. The baseline data of the soil points out that at start it had a low amount of Carbon.
What makes this site unique is that on the Iberian Peninsula we are fighting desertification and so far the desert is winning. We’re working every day to make our little part of the frontier against this process survive. Buying our carbon removal credits will allow us to scale and continue this work.
