While carbon markets are complicated, we make profiting from them simple. By applying our team’s collective 35+ years of combined carbon project experience across more than 50 projects and 14 million forested acres, we design and manage all aspects of the Forest Carbon Works Conserve program, handle all reporting, and sell the premium-grade carbon credits our members’ land earns on the Voluntary Carbon Market.
Here’s how it works:
1. Apply Online
Create an account, then follow the prompts to complete the full application (if you don’t know all the details, call us for help!).
2. Get comfortable with the details
Discuss the details of membership with your Forest Carbon Works representative. Take care to ask as many questions as needed to get comfortable with all aspects, including the payment level for which your land qualifies.
3. Confirm your interest and request a Membership Offer
Confirm with your membership advisor that you understand all program details and would like to receive a formal Membership Offer.
4. Review and sign your offer
On receipt of a formal membership offer, review, sign and return the Membership Agreement to us. On receipt of your signed offer, you will receive a Down Payment within 30 days!
5. Get paid every year
After the first year, we pay you annually in exchange for preserving and caring for your forest in accordance with the requirements of our program!
How much can I earn?
Payment offers for qualifying landowners are based on their forest land’s carbon accretion rate – the more productive their forest is, the more we can offer them. Some regions of the country tend to be significantly more productive than others, so the best way to find out what you can earn is to apply!
A down payment is made within 30 days of signing the Membership Agreement, and – once the first year is completed – payments are made annually thereafter until year 25, at which time you or your successors can opt in to additional 5-year payment terms up to 5 more times, for a total of up to 50 years’ worth of annual payments. These payments are guaranteed to all members in good standing, every year.
