Doe Mountain Forestry Offset Project, located on more than 8,000 acres of mixed hardwoods in northeast Tennessee, provides regular income stream for the recreation area’s trail and infrastructure improvements while conserving Doe Mountain’s visually stunning landscape for future generations. Prior to 2017, this land had no protections in place until the Doe Mountain Recreation Authority Board voted unanimously to increase the Doe Mountain forest carbon storage above the baseline level over a 40-year period, protecting the land from alternative scenarios such as subdivision and development or timber harvesting.
Each offset purchased is the equivalent of the carbon sequestered by around one acre of US forests every year.
