Over the past two years, we have helped plant more than 1 million trees and return more than 3,000 acres of land back to native forest. Our current and past engagements include:
Restoring a Forest Legacy at Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge, USA
Client: The Conservation Fund, Go Zero Program
Services: Site assessment, planting, survival assessment
The project involved planting native bottomland hardwood seedlings on more than 2,600 acres of land in the Upper Ouachita National Wildlife Refuge (located in northeastern Louisiana). The project, which was awarded gold level validation under the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standards, will improve flood control and water quality for communities downstream, and contribute to climate change mitigation by removing an estimated 800,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere over its life. Working closely with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Conservation Fund, TerraCarbon was responsible for site assessment, planting, survival assessment, and CCB project support.
