UPM Blandin Improved Forest Management Project, Minnesota, USA

Client: UPM Blandin
Standard: American Carbon Registry (ACR)
TC Services: Project feasibility, project design, monitoring

The project is located in northern Minnesota and covers more than 175,000 acres of mixed hardwood forests. It involves improving forest management by employing Smart Forestry practices which combines ecologically-based forestry and best site management practices to increase carbon storage levels. Smart Forestry practices, long-term protection, and public access to the forest is guaranteed by a conservation easement held by the state of Minnesota in the state’s largest conservation deal ever.

TerraCarbon provided technical support to UPM Blandin on this project including feasibility assessment, project design (including design and oversight of forest carbon inventory and baseline modeling), and monitoring. TerraCarbon is also providing offset marketing support.
