Forest Carbon for the Family Forest Owner

Many family forest landowners are managing their property in a way that stores a lot of carbon in their forests’ growth, and opportunities exist to be paid for this “carbon sequestration service.” The Stewart family’s Raincloud Tree Farm is one of the first examples of how forest carbon markets can work for family forest owners in Oregon. Jon Stewart will share his experience including key steps in the process of enrolling his 115-acre woodland in a forest carbon sequestration program. This was done in partnership with the Pinchot Institute for Conservation and their project Unlocking Carbon Markets for Family Forest Owners. The goal is to help overcome barriers that prevent family forest owners from participating in carbon markets. Attend this session to see how it can work.
