Carbon Markets for the Northern Forest
Victory ProjectThis 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.
- 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 & CollaboratorsWe 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.
