In late December, TerraCarbon completed the planting of more than 150,000 trees on 500 acres of bottomland hardwood forest at Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge on behalf of donors of The Conservation Fund’s Go Zero Program and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The planting marked the 1 millionth tree planted at Upper Ouachita by TerraCarbon on behalf of Go Zero donors.
The planting is part of a larger reforestation effort that covers more than 2,600 acres that was awarded gold level validation under the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standards. In addition to mitigating climate change, the project will help restore critical floodplains, wildlife habitat, and recreational areas.
