Who we are

Forest Carbon Works was founded to conserve forests and support the private forest landowners that are carrying out their stewardship efforts.

We support private forest landowners in the long-term conservation of their forests through Membership with Forest Carbon Works.

Forest Carbon Works distills the complex processes of the carbon markets into a simple Membership service, creating access so that private forest landowners can be recognized and rewarded for long-term conservation. Our team is at your side as you explore Membership and prepare to make Forest Carbon Works a part of your forest legacy!

Our Mission

Our mission is supporting the long-term conservation of American forests and empowering stewardship among family forest owners. We seek to…

Conserve standing forests in woodlands throughout America.

Support the private forest owners who undertake these conservation efforts.

These goals are rooted in the understanding that intact forests offer a variety of benefits, magnifying in impact over time, and bear a great value worth protecting.

Our Credit Sales Philosophy

We believe that our nature-based solutions credits are of the highest quality, demonstrating clear durability and additionality. Because of this, we believe that our credits will demand a premium from buyers who are serious about their net zero goals. We prioritize and value building relationships with buyers that are actively working to reduce emissions, believe in the value of long-term forest conservation, have created net zero goals, and understand that our product is a very important bridge to that gap.

Our Team

We’ve been conserving forests through carbon since 2009, prior to branching out from our parent company, EP Carbon.  Domestically, our team has worked with forests large and small. We’re passionate about forest conservation and dedicated to working with forest owners. We seek to remove obstacles to the carbon markets, allow family forest owners to be recognized for conserving their forests, and provide a chance to broaden their revenues beyond timber. More carbon capture means more long-term forest conservation!

Our home bases are in Minnesota and Vermont but we have teammates throughout the United States. From Oregon to Florida, to Virginia and Utah, our team is built of analysts, foresters, customer representatives, interns, and technicians based in and out of the field.

Our team is passionate about conserving forests for the long term and supporting the stewardship efforts of private forest owners throughout the United States.
