Get Started How It Works

The Tools You Need To Do Right by Your Land

The Family Forest Carbon Program provides financial and technical resources to help you improve the health and value of your woodland.

The program was developed by two national nonprofits, the American Forest Foundation and The Nature Conservancy, to help forest owners implement sustainable forest management practices that result in healthier forests, higher-quality timber, improved wildlife habitat and increased carbon storage.

The Family Forest Carbon Program enables private forest owners across 15 states to access the voluntary carbon market, a growing market that has been traditionally inaccessible to smaller forest owners, providing landowners with income they can use toward forest management costs or to help pay property taxes.

Georgia landowners with 40+ acres of unplanted fields can receive funding and guidance to grow loblolly pine for profit through Field to Forest.

The Family Forest Carbon Program is a program of the Family Forest Impact Foundation LLC, an affiliate of the 501(c)(3) non-profit American Forest Foundation. The Nature Conservancy is an implementing partner on some but not all Family Forest Carbon Program practices.
