TimberWest Strathcona Ecosystem Conservation Program Project - Transitioned to BCCR(ID: 100000000000706)
British Columbia Government
Pacific Carbon Trust has invested in an Improved Forest Management project that will result in the conservation of select old growth stands on TimberWest’s private land. This is the first forest project to use BC’s Forest Carbon Offset Protocol (FCOP). The project is located on a 26,000 ha of Timberwest’s old growth forest free-hold property on Vancouver Island.
Reduced emissions resulted from action taken to conserve a forested area that would otherwise be harvested under an existing harvest plan on private land. Additional emissions reductions come from avoided use of fossil fuel-based energy for operating trucks and logging equipment. Transitioned to BC Carbon Registry. This project has been grandfathered under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act and may have further issuances for the period after December 31, 2015.
