Common questions

4,000, contiguous or non-contiguous, acres is the approximate bare minimum footprint for a viable project.

The implications on land management are directly related to the project type chosen. Generally speaking, improved forest management projects do not allow harvesting to exceed forest growth, but harvesting is still permitted. If commercial harvesting is undertaken on the project area, either certification under FSC, SFI, ATFS, or a state approved forest management plan must be maintained. Additionally, compliance projects face restrictions on the size of even-aged harvests and are not permitted to utilize broadcast fertilization.

Length of commitment is dependent on project type and can range from 40 years for voluntary projects to over 100 years for compliance projects.

Voluntary projects are subject to the rulesets/protocols designated by the various voluntary offset registries (e.g. ACR, CAR, Verra, etc.). Compliance projects are subject to the California Air Resource Board’s Cap-And-Trade Regulation and the associated Forest Offset Protocol. Voluntary and compliance credits have different communities of buyers and trade at different pricing levels.

Anew leverages decades of experience along with proprietary software to determine your carbon yield. We evaluate forest stocking, age, species and other data to perform complex calculations in accordance with both voluntary and compliance carbon offset standards. Please contact us to begin the evaluation process and get your free estimate.

Credits can take anywhere from 18 to 24 months to generate, depending on many factors including: project type, location, forest heterogeneity, verifiers’ schedules, and regulatory body backlogs. Anew manages your project from start to finish, using our reputation and experience with regulators and verifiers to advocate for your project and ensure credits are generated as efficiently as possible.

Big Wild Michigan DNR Forestry Project
