Some of you may have heard, but I thought I'd share this with those that had not. The USDA Forest Service Northeastern Area "Carbon Market" opportunities web site is up and running! Link to it from the Northeastern Area Homepage ( http://www.na.fs.fed.us/) or directly at: http://www.na.fs.fed.us/ecosystemservices/carbon/index.shtm .
The website delivers background information on climate change and forests and as well as information about how private forest landowners can engage in voluntary markets and the potential costs, benefits, risks and opportunities of doing so. Look for other updates, tools and resources on the website as well, including a link to CVal, a newly released forest carbon spreadsheet valuation tool designed for landowners and consulting foresters.
Many thanks to Sarah Hines of the Forest Servicefor compiling/creating this web content for us!
