A New Model for Urban Forestry Carbon Trading

Recording: A New Model for Urban Forestry Carbon Trading, Date TBA

Forest planting has been identified as the most effective source of global carbon offsets, yet urban forest tree plantings suffer from a chronic lack of funding. TreeFolks, the City of Austin, and City Forest Credits are partnering to run a pilot for generating carbon credits from municipal tree planting projects. We will discuss partner roles and the process for generating credits from container tree plantings and creekside restoration plantings, along with a vision for how to leverage carbon trading to support urban forestry statewide.
