Forest carbon sequestration is a new and rapidly evolving concept for forestry in California. This website can be used as a gateway for those interested in certifying carbon on forestland in California.
This website is also a demonstration of how to implement a certification of sequestered carbon with the California Climate Action Registry using the Forest Project Protocol. A Forest Project Protocol certifies a portion of a forest as opposed to the whole property. The demonstration site is located in LaTour Demonstration State Forest, northeast of Redding, California.
This project and the final report was made possible through a grant administered by WESTCARB and funded by the California Energy Commission.
