Sep. 24, 2009, Nanaimo, BC - Tree Canada released its Forest and Urban Tree Carbon Project Protocol during the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Institute of Forestry in Nanaimo, British Columbia, in late September. The protocol describes how Tree Canada will account for the greenhouse gas offset value of trees.
More individuals, companies, and organizations are interested in tree
projects as a way to offset their carbon emissions. This protocol is
a technical document that will answer questions
verification and how it meets Kyoto Protocol standards of additionality,
determining baseline scenarios. It also provides examples of Tree Canada's history in providing
successful tree projects across Canada in urban and rural landscapes. The
protocol was authored by expert associates of Tree Canada and peer reviewed by
four recognized carbon experts across Canada.
"The carbon offset market is becoming
more sophisticated and this protocol is a response to this evolution,"
explained Michael Rosen, Tree Canada president. "This protocol explains how Tree Canada's forestry
projects can be used as a legitimate carbon offset option."
