The Reserve is pleased to announce the release of the Urban Forest Management Project Protocol Version 1.1. Numerous minor updates have been made to enhance usability and work toward improving project feasibility. The most significant of these changes include: the addition of default ratio estimators by Assessment Area (used for calculating a relationship between canopy cover and carbon), and updates to verification requirements and guidance – including making site visits optional for projects using default ratio estimators. The protocol, quantification guidance, Assessment Area Data File, and complete summary of changes are available on the Urban Forest Project Protocol webpage.
Please join the Reserve for a free public webinar reviewing the changes to the Urban Forest Management Project Protocol on Wednesday, June 12 at 11:00 am PDT.
