I should make a point here. You aren't offsetting CO2 emissions - you're just delaying them. Yes, the CO2 will be absorbed the trees, but when they die and decay at some point in the future, a significant proportion of that CO2 will be released back into the atmosphere.
I instead will aim to reduce my CO2 'footprint' as much as possible, but I think what you're proposing is better than not doing anything at all.Paul Robinson, 15 years ago.
