Sale of First Carbon Offsets from
Maine Ecological Reserve -Kasey Krifka
The Climate Trust recently purchased carbon offsets from The Appalachian Mountain Club's (AMC) Katahdin Iron Works conservation property in Maine. By encouraging natural forest growth on AMC’s 10,000-acre ecological reserve, the project preserves stored carbon in the forest and enables an additional revenue stream through the sale of carbon offsets. AMC’s property was established as part of the organization’s Maine Woods Initiative—a strategy for land conservation in the 100-Mile Wilderness region.
Forests and Businesses Can Grow Together -Christine Yankel
Portland’s nickname “Stumptown” reflects the central but conflicted role of trees in Oregon’s physical, cultural, and economic landscape. Forests cover nearly half of Oregon’s 62 million acres, and while wood product markets have faced challenges in recent years, the forest sector employs more than 76,000 people in Oregon and accounts for nearly 7% of Oregon’s economic base. In some rural counties, the forest sector accounts for up to 30% of the local economy.
