Farm reforestation opportunities potentially lucrative

Australian Horticulture;Apr2010, Issue 4, p35
The article discusses the potential economic advantages for Australian farmers of carbon storage through reforestation. The federal government plans to issue carbon credits for carbon stored in carbon sink forests, which can be traded under the carbon pollution reduction scheme (CPRS). Farmers are advised to combat soil erosion as a carbon sink forest and access carbon credits which may have a significant value or to register harvestable forests, among other options.
