Doe Mountain Forestry Offset Project is located in northeast Tennessee. It includes over 8,000 acres of mixed hardwoods and ensures that the recreation area’s trail and infrastructure improvements are financially covered while conserving Doe Mountain’s stunning landscape and improving wildlife habitat.
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 over a 40-year period, protecting the land from alternative scenarios such as subdivision and development or timber harvesting.
Each one metric ton of CO2 offset purchased is the equivalent of the carbon sequestered by around one acre of US forests every year.
This project is verified by the American Carbon Registry.
