Cashing in on carbon credit: An experiment in sustainable tree harvesting

A non-profit sells carbon credits to finance its work harvesting New Brunswick trees in a sustainable way

On a country back road near Penobsquis, an experiment is underway that its supporters hope will point the way to a market-driven, low-carbon economic boom for New Brunswick.

A non-profit organization called Community Forests International bought more than 285 hectares of forest from a private landowner and is now harvesting it using low-impact, sustainable methods.
