Shaan Seet Forestry Project


Registry: American Carbon Registry


Project ID: 534

Shaan Seet is an improved forest management project located on over 8,000 acres of old growth hemlock-spruce forest on Prince Wales Island in Southeastern Alaska. The forest had for many years been subject to indiscriminate timber harvesting and suffered diminishing forest health. The project includes higher elevation regions, wetlands, beach fringes, and 7,000 acres of old growth forest.

Through sustainable forest management, Shaan Seet strictly manages deforestation and preserves natural forest growth. The project protects and maintains forest CO2 stocks, thus providing significant climate benefits through carbon sequestration.
