Referral Program

Virtually anyone may be in a position to refer a landowner to us – from consulting foresters and community members to friends and relatives. To encourage and reward those who connect landowners to Forest Carbon Works, we offer a referral commission for every new acre enrolled in our carbon program, FCW Conserve.

For the referral of new members that enroll in FCW Conserve upon signing of our Forest Management Lease Agreement (FMLA), we will award:

  • $2 per acre for 40 to 1,000 acres enrolled
  • $1 per acre for next 1,001 to 2,000 acres enrolled
  • $0.50 per acre for remaining 2,001+ acres enrolled
  • $10,000 maximum referral award

Referrers must be indicated on our program application or in writing by the landowner to their Forest Carbon Works Membership Advisor during the enrollment process, prior to signing of the FMLA. The maximum payment is applicable to any individual landowner member referred; a single referrer can refer multiple landowners.

Referrers must respond to outreach from Forest Carbon Works within 14 days to referral payment information requests. Each referrer will need to provide Forest Carbon Works with their contact information (name, email address, mailing address, phone number) along with a completed W-9 tax form before payment is issued.
