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
Big Wild Michigan DNR Forestry Project
Timber management has long been a part of the DNR’s management of the land. Carbon credits from this project are generated based on progressively increasing forest growth, rather than increasing harvest levels as would be allowable under the management plan and state law.
Shaan Seet Forestry Project
Shaan Seet is an improved forest management project on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. Owned and managed by Shaan Seet, Inc., the forest includes higher elevations, deglaciated lands, wetlands, beaches and 7,000 acres of old-growth forest that supplied nearby timber corporations and pulp mills in the 1980s.
Goodman Forestry Project
This forest is owned by Forest Investment Associates and protected under a carbon project enrolled in and generating credits for the California Air Resources Board compliance 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.
