Together with dedicated landowners, we have conserved more than 1,000 acres of forest in the Maritime Provinces of Canada.Learn More
We need healthy forests now, more than ever. That’s why we’re proud to have protected more than 2,700 acres of Acadian forest in Eastern Canada. By conserving these forests, the emissions that would be released if they were destroyed are avoided. These protected forests then act as deepening carbon sinks with countless co-benefits.
The out-migration of young people and poor markets leave a significant gap in forest stewardship in Atlantic Canada, which forces many landowners to clear-cut their forests for income or to retire—or sell their land to someone who will! If you have stewarded your forest with care, the prospect of having your land cleared can be devastating—but we’re here to help protect your property.
Together with responsible companies, we are transforming the Acadian forest into one of Canada’s greatest carbon storehouses. Not all carbon offsets are created equal—when you purchase offsets from Community Forests International, you can be sure that you are making a meaningful contribution to climate action.
Community Forests International shares and develops knowledge and tools that help build the capacity of rural landowners to manage their lands for climate mitigation and increase our forests’ ability to adapt to climate change.
