On behalf of The Forestland Group (TFG), forest carbon offset developer Finite Carbon successfully registered TFG’s Champion and Connecticut Lakes Improved Forest Management Projects with the California Air Resources Board (ARB) compliance offset program for US forests.
Located on 102,899 acres in New York’s Adirondack Mountains, the Champion Project was first registered with the Climate Action Reserve in January 2013 and project offsets were transitioned to the ARB program on November 17, 2014. Registered through the American Carbon Registry, the 141,062 acre Connecticut Lakes Project in northern New Hampshire was developed directly to California’s ARB compliance offset program and approved for offset issuance on December 24, 2014. By selling carbon offsets in the California cap-and-trade program, the properties will be managed for both increased carbon sequestration and sustainable timber production.
