Of all the ‘isms’ surrounding land management, you’re focused on one — pragmatism.

You’re not chaining yourself to trees, but you are tying yourself to their future. You don’t worry about the left or the right, just doing what’s right to preserve what’s left.

You know you don’t have to preserve every tree to save them all.

While everyone is arguing about what’s best, you’re busy doing something good. For the planet, and especially your slice of it.

Because your land is more than where you live or hunt or hike. It’s where you’ve put down roots of your own. After all your land has given you, you want to ensure it has plenty left for the next generation. And the next. And the next.

But sustainability isn’t easy.

Taxes don’t pay themselves, and the offers from developers or loggers can be enticing when they’re the only options.

Now there’s a better one, a way to get the most out of your trees by taking advantage of what Mother Nature puts into them: carbon.

Forest Carbon Works can help. We’ll navigate the carbon credit market for you, so you earn a passive income for actively preserving — and enjoying — your land.

You’re more than a landowner. You’re a caretaker. A protector. A steward.

You’re a Green-Collar Conservationist.

Meet The Stewarts

Forest Carbon Works enables me to harness the power of the forest our family has owned since 1892.

— Jon Stewart, Forest Carbon Works Member

Instead of selling timber, landowners Jonathan and Janice Stewart sell the carbon from their family woodlands. They have started to receive annual payments of nearly $10,000 for their 120-acre forest east of Portland, Oregon.

Owned by their family since the late 1800s, the forest has been maintained primarily for conservation, recreation, and passive timber management. The Stewart family can now add carbon sequestration as an official activity for their family forest!
