Natural Climate Solutions
Managing and restoring ecosystems to benefit our climate
North America's leading nature-based project developer and carbon credit portfolio
In partnership with landowners, our forest carbon and nature-based projects are positively changing landscapes and generating trusted, third-party verified conservation and registry-tagged removal credits. Our experience, cutting-edge technology, and unwavering commitment to ground truth has ranked Anew as Environmental Finance’s Best Project Developer (North American Markets) for eight consecutive years.
Improved Forest Management
Our team will guide you through your options for diversifying revenue through carbon focused forest management, prioritizing increased forest stocking and improving biodiversity.
Restoring or conserving natural grasslands can have a measurable climate impact through soil carbon sequestration. A minimum of 10,000 acres is recommended to qualify as a viable project.
Reforestation and Afforestation
The establishment of forests across landscapes that have been previously been degraded by human activity or natural disasters is creditable through the Climate Action Reserve, Verra, and ACR. We’ll guide you through options for your land.
Prescribed burns, thinning, pruning, mastication, or mechanical removal of vegetation are all eligible for avoided wildfire emissions in the western United States in collaboration with Climate Forward, a sub-unit of the Climate Action Registry.
The protection and restoration of coastal wetland forests, typically dominated by mangroves, salt marsh plants and seagrasses plays a critical role in carbon sequestration and climate adaptation.

Project examples on private, public, and indigenous lands
Rusk County Forestry Project
The Anew – Rusk County Forestry Project is located on 79,307 acres of northern hardwood, aspen, and oak forest in Rusk County, Wisconsin. The County has practiced intensive commercial harvesting across its ownership since first enrolling its land under Wisconsin’s Forest Crop Law in 1931. Revenues from timbering represent the largest source of annual income for the County, outside of tax collection, and are essential for funding public services and County administration. In addition to serving as a timber resource, the County forest provides the public with recreational access.
Doyon Forestry Project
The Doyon Native Community Forest Project is located on 172,737 acres of boreal forest across Alaska’s Yukon-Koyukuk and Southeast Fairbanks boroughs, and is the property of Doyon, Limited, a for-profit corporation owned and managed by Alaska Native shareholders. Historically, forests in the project region have been subject to mining and timbering, which still occur on Doyon lands today. The project supports Doyon, Limited’s mission to be a leading innovator amongst Alaska’s Native Corporations and to promote the economic and social well-being of Alaska Natives. More specifically, carbon funding will contribute to job opportunities and regional economic growth within the community, investment in sustainability infrastructure (e.g. clean water distribution stations, LEED building construction, restoration of riparian zones), and targeted forest management for cultural use and recreation. In addition, the financial success of the forest carbon project will reduce economic pressures for expansion of mining across Doyon, Limited’s broader land base.
Allagash Headwaters Forestry Project
Allagash Headwaters is located on approximately 14,800 acres in the industrial forests of northern Maine and owned by Hull Forestlands Maine. The Hull family of companies, which includes timberland scattered across New England and a sawmill in Pomfret Center Connecticut, focuses on the production of traditional forest products. Throughout the project area’s geographic region, industrial forestland like the Allagash property is often heavily harvested through clear-cutting and high-grading, in the service of maximizing the NPV of the forest asset. The previous landowner cut more than 70% of the 20-year sustainable harvest levels in the 5 years prior to the property changing hands. Carbon revenues are not only allowing Hull to harvest less, but to harvest in a more sustainable manner (non-traditional methods) that lead to less impact on the ground, more diverse and healthy trees, more carbon storage through larger and older trees, and habitat generation for species of concern such as the Canada lynx (threatened) and the Rusty Blackbird.
Common questions about land enrollment
Anew is active in Blue Carbon
Coastal and marine ecosystems are vital to the health of our planet, serving as nursery grounds for marine life, filtration systems for onshore runoff, and natural storm surge buffers. Marine plants also naturally capture and store substantial amounts of carbon. Development, deforestration, and damaging upstream activities can release carbon into the atmosphere. Carbon projects incentivize carbon to be stored in this way and offer legally enforceable protection. We can determine if you have a viable blue carbon project and help you make the most of the opportunity by bringing it to market.

5% of U.S. timberlands change hands each year for investment, development, and wood product purposes. Landowner intent by itself does not guarantee long-term forest protection, but carbon projects do.
