Emerging climate markets are creating economic incentives to keep forests healthy and productive through reforestation, thinning overgrown forests, and more. However, high acreage requirements and prohibitive start-up costs have caused many small-acreage and underserved private forest owners to be left behind. These investments will expand access to markets that were previously out-of-reach, allowing underserved and small-acreage forest landowners to be a larger part of the climate solution while also supporting rural economies and healthy forests.
