• Restoring a once thriving floodplain forest in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley and riparian forests in Virginia from what is now degraded agricultural land.
  • The largest verified reforestation carbon credit program in the United States (and one of the largest in the world) that uses programmatic aggregation for increased durability.
  • Small and medium sized landowners trust their land to this project because of its long standing reputation and its proven economic benefits.

With a goal of reforesting 1 million acres and over 20 years of on-the-ground experience, this project is sequestering reliable, world class carbon credits at an incredible scale.


In one of the poorest areas in the country (6 of the 10 poorest counties in the U.S. are in this region), this project is providing long term financial incentives to more than 600 landowners. Additionally, over 39 jobs are created across 20+ industries for every one million dollars invested in reforestation.


Restoring degraded lands establishes quality wildlife habitats for both game and non-game species. Calculated tree planting ensures that multiple species of trees can be planted with maximized biodiversity rather than a single homogeneous tree type.
