Forest Alliance Virtual Annual Meeting October 23rd Focuses on Carbon, Awards

Are you interested in how Forest Carbon can help combat climate change and provide woodland owners more income? 

If so, you should take part in the Forest Alliance’s virtual 2021 Annual Meeting on October 23rd.

The Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, October 23rd from 10 am to 12:15 pm.

This year’s annual meeting, held online to avoid risk to members from COVID, will include 3 presentations on different aspects of Forest Carbon and how woodland owners could potentially benefit from Forest Carbon markets.

Our keynote speaker, Eric Kingsley from Innovative Natural Resource Solutions (INRS), will first provide an overview of how forest carbon works and carbon credit programs that could be of use to forest landowners.

Dr. Laura Marx from The Nature Conservancy will then discuss a number of climate forestry/carbon projects now taking place in Massachusetts.

Our last presenter, Kathryn Morse from NCX. will discuss NCX’s remote surveying carbon credit program that purchases credits for one year increments at no cost to the landowner.

Besides the forest carbon discussions, the Annual Meeting will include presentations of MFA’s annual awards and a short business meeting.

The virtual meeting has been approved for 1.5 Massachusetts Forester continuing ed credits in Category I, 1.5 SAF CFEs in Category I, and 2.25 Massachusetts Timber Harvester Continuing education credits.
