At a Glance
  • Stores 77,000+ tons of CO2 annually 

  • Protects 9,600+ hectares of ancient redwood forest 

  • Protects 53 miles of river stream, home to multiple endangered fish species

Projects Benefits
  • Sequesters 77,000+ tons CO2e annually from the atmosphere

  • Protects 9,600+ hectares of ancient redwood forest 

  • Promotes biodiversity and protects habitats

  • Created 200+ jobs 

  • Balances environmental stewardship with sustainable economics

About reforestation
These projects protect and restore forests which sequester carbon and help biodiversity to thrive. One mature tree in a forest sequesters around ~20kg of carbon every year.
How it works
  • Sustainable timber production in the region ensures that the forest is managed properly, jobs created and funds are used, in addition to offsets purchased, to support the necessary environmental work

  • The protected forest hectares pull harmful carbon from the atmosphere

  • Habitats are improved and protected for endangered species that live amongst the redwood forest, promoting biodiversity 

  • Success of the project demonstrates the ability to balance sustainable economics with environmental preservations. Leading the way for more projects that follow a similar model 

Proof of Carbon Accounting
To ensure transparency, Green Story Carbon Registry tracks issuance and retirement of carbon credits for all projects on the Green Story offset platform.
