Urban Forest Project Protocol
The Urban Forest Project Protocol provides guidance to quantify and verify GHG reductions from a planned set of tree planting and maintenance activities implemented to permanently increase carbon storage through trees. The protocol is designed for use by municipalities, educational institutions, and utilities. This protocol was first adopted by the Reserve Board in August 2008.
The Urban Forest Project Protocol is currently undergoing revision. Please click the link below to access more information about this process and learn how to become involved.
