Boobera Native Forest Regeneration

( Australia )

Restoring native forests and sequestering carbon on degraded agricultural land.

Livestock and feral animals on grazing properties across regional Australia can suppress forest growth. By excluding stock and managing pests in these areas, the Human-Induced Regeneration (HIR) method can restore forest cover. As trees grow, they improve habitat for native species and restore local ecosystem services. But that’s not all – regenerated native forests also sequester carbon, thereby creating an alternative revenue stream for rural landholders in the form of Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs).

The numbers
  • Alternative income streams generated for landholders through the sale of carbon credits
  • 88,000 tCO2e emission reductions achieved to date as carbon is sequestered in regenerated trees
  • 27,000 hectares of habitat protected for native Australian wildlife and fire-dependent ecosystems supported
  • Increased biodiversity achieved through pest control and increased forest cover for native wildlife

Lower Mississippi Valley Reforestation

( United States )

Regenerating bottomland forests to enhance biodiversity.

The project is part of the grouped Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley Restoration Initiative, which aims to reforest one million acres throughout the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and Illinois. Considered North America’s rainforest, this region is a vital habitat for migratory birds as well as numerous plant and animal species.

The numbers
  • 1,619,592 tCO2e reduced annually through forest carbon sequestration
  • 89.4 hectares reforested so far, with a mixture of native bottomland hardwood trees
  • 96,015 trees planted in this initial project area

Shipping that's good for the world.
