Regrowth benefits

Colour ramp layer

The colour ramp layer indicates the potential in carbon and biodiversity benefits in Queensland as indicated by the adjacent image. The carbon and biodiversity layers can be viewed in isolation by setting the mix to 100% carbon or 100% biodiversity in the drop-down box below or they can be mixed depending on your level of interest.

Where to start

Carbon estimates are indicative only. They are based on a simple forest growth model1 and assume ‘average climate’. Actual carbon abatement achieved will depend upon rainfall, management and many other factors.
