Can I sell my land if it is part of an Arbonics programme?

Yes, but you have to ensure that the new owner shall become a party to the contract instead of you.

The transfer is important to ensure the permanence of forest carbon credits. If no transfer happens then the new owner has no obligation to follow the same forest management principles and the credits may be considered to be issued without grounds.

If the new owner declines to take over the contract, the contract will be considered to be terminated prematurely (read more on the consequences of leaving early here) and you may be liable for the actions done by the new owner (e.g. when the new owner decides to cut down the forest prematurely).
