Carbon Markets for the Northern Forest


Victory Project

This project seeks to create and analyze a market-ready carbon offset project that can serve as a model for owners of degraded forests throughout the state, region, and nation. A case study describing the project, its successes, and challenges will aid landowners, foresters, policy makers, and state agencies in how they approach carbon offset projects.

Project Area

  • Located in Victory, in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom
  • 1,073 acres of hardwood and spruce-fir forests
  • Contiguous with Victory State Forest (14,340 acres), which abuts the Victory Basin Wildlife Management Area (4,970 acres)
  • Exploring options for both improved forest management and avoided deforestation

Funders & Collaborators

We are fortunate to have support from the Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant program. Conservation Collaboratives is the lead and the Carbon Dynamics Lab and Forest Carbon & Communities Research Group are co-PIs working on issues of marketing options and policy implications.
