Hey I’m gonna be taking notes with this app https://try.beulr.com/zoom/ — if anyone wants a copy just lmk (PM me)
I have heard that Verra requires FSC certification. Is that the case for carbon projects through FCW? Also, who are the major purchasers of credits through FCW?
Is a conservation easement that simply requires a forest management plan to harvest acceptable?
you seem to be breaking up. not sure if you or me..
Is the amount of available carbon you can sell flexible?
Do you provide advice to landowners on management approaches that will help to maintain or increase carbon?
Bethany Muñoz Delgado
Are you able to relay what software you use for modeling/estimating carbon stocks?
A recent report suggested that the 20% leakage reserve had been eaten up by fires in some similar western efforts. Care to comment on that?
Does the landowner receive a lesser amount per acre if already in a forest tax program?
How does FCW calculate the business as usual baseline? Thank you.
What are penalties if owner decides to opt out in year 6 of the contract, and how does that all work with their credits and the credibility of the offsets?
How does the buffer pool work? Does it make the program completely risk-free for the landowner?
If someone sells land with a 100-year carbon contract, what is the mechanism to have the contract follow to the new owner? Is there a lien on the deed? Is there a penalty to the existing owner if the new owner decides not to adopt the contract?
what types of harvest are allowed & what is the typical allowed frequency? (thinnings, clear cuts, etc, that follow forest management plans)
How does FCW get paid for their work? A percentage of the amount of the sale of the carbon or some other way?
Issue: Solar Projects vs forested land. Question: From a climate change perspective - what questions need to be asked, what info is needed to calculate which use is better? I will also be sending this question to Charlie by e-mail. Thank you.
Everyone - sorry about audio problems. It appears to be a Zoom problem. I am trying to fix but not having any luck. Charlie Levesque
Are monoculture reforestation areas owned by, for example, paper companies, equally eligible for carbon credits as more ecologically rich forests?
Did you indicate that mgt plan formats are available. How does this comply with forester licensing laws?
This platform does not seem to be up and running yet. Perhaps you said that already. Thank you.
Same questions as for FCW: are forest certifications required? and who are the major purchasers of Core Carbon credits?
We have 5,000 acres that have been very minimally cut since 1926, and do not plan any extensive cutting. Does this mean the "baseline" activity is too low to generate additional carbon offsets?
Maybe I missed it, but do all an owner's acres need to be enrolled as with Carbon Woks program or can a landowner opt to enroll a partial number of acres?
I like your coulter pine cone :-) Jazmin
Anne Marcalus Sedler
can only understand small portions of her answers
Same question to Richard (Jazmin's answer was inaudible): We have 5,000 acres that have been very minimally cut since 1926, and do not plan any extensive cutting. Does this mean the "baseline" activity is too low to generate additional carbon offsets?
If I have contracted acres through NRCS EQIP "Forest Thinning" completed and/or contracted ….. Can these acres be enrolled in your program?
Can you split a property between Enhancement and Grow Older?
Is family forest available in northern NY?
NRCS now has carbon enhancement practices. I assume enrollment in NRCS means a landowner isn't eligible to work with FFCP?
Does this program ever allow landowners to benefit from increasing carbon credit values?
Can a landowner perform TSI in sapling stands in the Family Forest Carbon Program?
Are protocols available for other than NE regions of the US?
NRCS has practices that favor Carbon just as forest as forests "enhance" water quality, wildlife, etc. I have not seen any programs that NRCS has paid for carbon.
Why are you not looking for forester in NY?
where does your money come from to pay for good mgt?
Is there any distinction between already conserved land, and not yet conserved land, if no carbon credits have been sold or promised?
To what degree is "all ownership" assessed? If I own 100,000 ac and create 5 different LLCs of 20,000 ac and enroll 1 does that work?
If a portion of an ownership is set aside as "wilderness" with no harvesting, is the remaining property eligible?
If you have a mgmt plan that doesn't call for harvesting in the next year, does this still fit your requirement that the forest land "could" be harvested in the next year?

For each dollar paid by a buyer, how much of that dollar goes to the landowner?
How does a one year deferral actually address a positive increase in carbon storage. It seems easy to get paid for carbon then sell the carbon the next year.
Two questions: can you give a range of what payments have tended to be so far per acre? Second, if you keep delaying the same harvest year after year, do you keep receiving the same payment? Thank you.
How is a one-year delay determined? Does there need to be a timber sale contract in place that gets delayed? Or a target date of harvest in a management plan?
How is NCX achieving "permanence" of the carbon credits using one-year contracts?
If your land is carbon rich but the cohort average is moderate, an owner loses on total payment due to other owner's past management decisions, is that correct based on your business model of averaging stocking and determination of deferred harvest credits?
Correct me if I mis-interpreted, but In one of the slides it is mentioned that a seller of credits can set their own price - how does the credit pricing mechanism work?
NCX- Is there a maximum number of times that the same property can be consecutively re-enrolled? (It currently sounds that the number is two.)
Bluesource-if a landowner adds a working forest easement to the property, can that increase the value of carbon sold?
After the initial sale of credits, can you explain how subsequent sales of offsets work? Thank you.
What is BlueSource's revenue split with the landowner?
Tommie Elder, Director, Forest Carbon Origination, Bluesource email@example.com 540 905 9531
15%-40% to BlueSource?
Do landowners have individual accounts in the specific carbon registries or does Bluesource bundle credits for sales to various entities and sell under the bluesource account?
CORE Carbon/Finite Carbon:Jazmín M. Varela Director of Landowner Relationsjvarela@firstname.lastname@example.org
To all panelists - Are offset buyers paying premiums for offsets for various states or regions in the US? Is there a difference between CARB and voluntary markets?
thank you. really good information
Richard, or anyone, is there any potential to include hay, row crops, fields or wetlands in the carbon market or any other t/programs?
There is a lot here! How will landowners navigate all of this? Thank you for today’s presentations and a great series overall.
Echoing the last comment. There is a lot to understand for foresters, let alone landowners. Thank you for your presentations.
Thanks indeed to Charlie and Ali and today's hosts ... I learned a lot. What Tommie said!
Thanks great information
Thank you all
