Forest Carbon Offsets

We need healthy forests now, more than ever.

Not all carbon offsets are created equal. Our carbon offsets project not only drawdown vast amounts of carbon emissions, they also preserve endangered forest ecosystems and have the potential to create new economic opportunities for rural communities.

Community Forests International follows strict procedures for quantifying and protecting the carbon stored in healthy forests, upholding a combination of world class verification standards. Additionally, Community Forests International employs conservation easements, which are legal tools used to ensure that forests are protected from clearcutting and other unsustainable practices in perpetuity.

We’re lucky to work with a very special forest type—the Acadian forest. The natural Acadian forest has very low risk of fire, making it one of the best forest types in Canada to store carbon. This forest type is one of the most diverse temperate forests in the world, but it is also one of the most endangered. More than 170 thousand acres of Acadian forest is destroyed every year by clear-cutting and only 5% now remains in pre-colonial condition.

Robinson Conservation Forest

This special 350-acre forest near Cambridge-Narrows is one of the last of its kind in New Brunswick. The Robinson family has managed this beautiful forest for generations—carbon offsets have allowed us to preserve their legacy of careful stewardship for years to come.

Whaelghinbran Forest

Located near Fundy National Park, this magnificent forest belonged to farmers Clark Phillips and Susan Tyler. Advanced in their years, they could no longer work the land and needed to sell their property to retire. By creating carbon offsets, we were able to purchase the property and protect their cherished forest lands.
