THE PLAINS, Va., Jul. 06 /CSRwire/ - GreenTrees recently completed its latest verification for 1,273,866 metric tons on the American Carbon Registry (ACR). This marks the second consecutive issuance of over one million tons. 

ACR has had fifteen issuances over a million forestry tons for both compliance and voluntary markets. This includes IFM, Avoided Conversion and Afforestation/Reforestation project types. Of the fifteen issuances, GreenTrees has two of them. Only three of the fifteen issuances are from afforestation/reforestation projects, with the remaining one from an international project.

The GreenTrees River System approach is setting the standard for how reforestation can achieve scale and impact and does it with small and medium-sized landowners. Reforestation provides a continuous loop of scaled impact while bending the climate curve. On behalf of our 500+ landowners ranging from 7 to 1700+ acres, the company is pleased to quantify the positive impact being made in cleaning up the air, building equity in the landscape, filtering the water and enhancing wildlife habitat. 

Ultimately, reforestation is about repairing past and growing future with nature’s technology —- Trees!
