Historically, only large landowners such as timber companies were able to generate and sell carbon offsets from their woodlands.
Through Forest Carbon Works, small landowners can access these same carbon markets.
- Get paid to store carbon in trees
- Diversify your revenues beyond timber
- Improve the ecological value of your forests
- Get recognition for forest stewardship
- Access estate planning services
There is no limit on property size, and all forest owners* can participate in the program. It’s free to get started!

Attend A Free Workshop
Learn about forest carbon
Join us for a free workshop to discuss forest carbon projects. Once we have a enough interest from landowners in your area, we’ll organize a one-day group meeting that everyone can attend. If you can’t make the workshop, join us for an online webinar instead. Get first-hand answers to your questions from a professional forester and network with other landowners too!
Use our simple app
We provide a smartphone to easily measure the carbon in your forest. At the workshop you will learn how to use the Carbon Works App to take pictures of trees. Pre-loaded on the smartphone, the app guides and tracks your photos as you walk through your woodland following predetermined routes. The app and the smartphone are provided free-of-charge.
Photograph your trees
Use the smartphone to photograph trees, guided by the Carbon Works App. The app automatically selects some trees to be photographed; only a handful of trees are actually captured throughout your property. Recruit your family and friends to spend a memorable weekend in the woods.

Receive Annual Payments
Once your documentation and tree measurements are officially approved, you will receive the first check within six months of issuance!
Recruit additional landowners and earn bonus payments.
Forest Carbon Works is provided by ecoPartners and is the exclusive access point to the carbon markets for small landowners. Landowners sell the carbon stored by their forest through membership in Forest Carbon Works.
