2014: Nuts and Bolts of Carbon Sequestration Projects in Minnesota’s Forests

This workshop explained the “why, how, and when” of developing a carbon project. It will include a field demonstration of forest measurements for a carbon inventory. Participants will learn how carbon sequestration value is measured, what costs and commitments are involved, and the potential to integrate a carbon project with existing timber management practices as well as programs like the Sustainable Forestry Incentives Act, FSC, SFI, and ATFS. They will also learn how to quickly assess a carbon project’s feasibility without a significant financial investment. The audience for this workshop includes foresters, landowners, and other interested stakeholders.
