Pacific Forest Trust: Carbon Projects to Mitigate Climate Change

The Pacific Forest Trust is a pioneer of approaches and standards used to create forest climate policies including carbon emissions reductions or offset projects which harness and protect the natural ability of forests to accumulate and hold carbon, acting as carbon “sinks” and providing essential climate benefits.

Carbon Markets

In the United States, several land trusts are already engaging in the carbon market. Advocacy efforts that support the development of legal frameworks that enable cap and trade or carbon offsets can further expand these programs throughout the United States and connect to international efforts to decrease carbon emissions through market mechanisms.

Blue Carbon

“Blue carbon” is the type of carbon that is stored by coastal wetland vegetation such as mangroves, seagrasses and salt marsh grasses. While protection and restoration of coastal ecosystems has a relatively low global mitigation potential due to their small distribution, these ecosystems can store carbon at high rates per hectare.

Funding Conservation with Carbon Sequestration – Downeast Lakes Land Trust

Downeast Lakes Land Trust’s carbon project covers more than 19,000 acres of the trust’s 33,700 Farm Cove Community Forest in eastern Maine, and registered nearly 200,000 offsets; each offset is equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide.

Case Studies

While unified in their mission to protect the landscapes we love, land trusts across the nation are responding to resource management challenges in various ways. These case studies highlight examples different approaches to achieving strategic conservation planning, building resilience through vulnerability assessments, and adaptation and mitigation projects. Youth education efforts that provide introductory information about climate change that will be necessary for the conservationists of tomorrow are also highlighted.

Carbon Dioxide Is Rising at Record Rates

This year scientists expect carbon dioxide to briefly reach 410 ppm this spring before the seasonal cycle of northern plant growth brings it back down a bit, continuing the ever-rising seesaw.

Building Resilience with Natural Adaptations to Change

Bainbridge Island Land Trust is working with property owners to implement natural adaptation solutions to build more resilient coastal systems. The Powel Shoreline Restoration Project removed shoreline bulkheading to enhance coastal habitats and reduce risks of destructive undercutting, leveraging a failing bulkhead to produce an adaptive win-win solution to adapt to change.
