Registry: American Carbon Registry


Project ID: 499

The Kootznoowoo project is located on over 19,000 acres of old growth and young growth hemlock-spruce forest along a section of Alaska’s coastline. Owned by Kootznoowoo Incorporate, a Native American timber company, the project was previously suffering from aggressive timber harvesting. Through sustainable forest management, this project reduces emissions caused by commercial forestry operations. It protects and maintains forest CO2 stocks thus providing significant climate benefits through carbon sequestration.
