Carbon Neutral Trees Multiple local native species of trees and shrubs are planted, with trees being legally protected on most sites. Sites will conservatively sequester between 150-250 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare over
their lifetime in the areas planted; this equates to approximately six trees per tonne. Species are selected according to soil type and local climate and include a range of local native trees, shrubs and understory. In most cases 10-40 different species will be established through direct seeding and /or planting seedlings. Carbon Neutral works with Land Conservation District Committees, Landcare Officers, Regional Catchment Councils and NRM officers. Mapping, weed and pest control, fire prevention and protection from livestock are all part of a comprehensive site management plan. Sites are monitored annually until established and in-fill planting is undertaken.

Yard Property has adopted a “we choose green” philosophy, and we’ve implemented a number of initiatives to show that we’re serious. With the assistance of Carbon Neutral, we’ve calculated our carbon footprint and estimated the greenhouse gas emissions created by our company’s activities. We also have a strategy to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by reducing our energy consumption and waste pollution. The remaining and unavoidable carbon emissions have been offset with the planting of trees. Yard Property has chosen to support biodiverse native tree planting, which achieves a wide range of environmental outcomes while also producing a valuable carbon-based asset. Forest sinks have many community and environmental benefits beyond their carbon benefits which, depending on the site may include:
> Assisting with prevention of soil and wind erosion > Assisting with prevention of water logging and salinity > Providing habitat for wildlife > Providing wind breaks and shade > Improving biodiversity > Opportunities for social and economic indigenous participation > Improving the quality of land for local farmers > Increasing atmospheric oxygen
On top of this, we also “plant a tree” for every home we sell and manage! It’s a good feeling knowing we are doing everything we can to minimise our environmental impact, now and for the future.
