Dunroven Farm Bamboo & Carbon Offset

Go Green with Bamboo, a Crucial Carbon Offset...

Bamboo Nursery Central FloridaThe United Nations recognizes bamboo's role as a crucial carbon offset.
Bamboo fights climate change by storing 4x the CO2 of a stand of trees of similar size and releasing over 35% more oxygen. Bamboo requires very little water to grow and almost no fertilizers to thrive. Bamboo attracts wildlife and prevents soil erosion.

In 1819 when the United States acquired Florida form Spain most of the central portion of the state was occupied by what was called pine-flatwoods.  This was an open stand of mixed pine and hardwoods with an understory consisting largely of palmettos.  The ecosystem had been maintained in the open condition by the periodic application of wildfire by the native Americans.  After the settlement by Europeans a major portion of the land was converted to grassland grazing.  A major portion of the land remains in grazing today either for cattle or horses with a significant amount of land being caught it the development speculation cycle.

Per the terms of the Kyoto Treaty the reforestation of land qualifies the project for the Carbon Offset protocols of the treaty and several reforestation projects have been undertaken using bamboos as the plant material of the new forest.  Additionally several papers were presented at the Copenhagen Conference on the use of bamboo for carbon sequestration.  Due to bamboo’s rapid early growth bamboo can remove more carbon dioxide from the air in less time than pine or hardwood forest plantings.

Bamboo has the potential to remove as much as 40 tons of carbon dioxide per acre per year. Your purchase of one carbon offset will plant bamboo in Central Florida in order to remove one ton of CO2.

Bamboo truly is a wonder of nature and plays an integral role in Carbon sequestration.
