Albany Water Improved Forest Management, USA

Protecting forest which includes the watershed of two reservoirs and a lake

Project Type: Natural climate solutions, Improved Forest Management

Standards: ACR

  • Albany Water Water
  • Albany Water River
  • Albany Water Trees

Developed through a partnership between The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Albany Water Board and the City of Albany Water Department, this improved forest management project permanently protects the watershed of the Alcove Reservoir, Basic Creek Reservoir, and Troutner Lake. The Albany Water Forestland provides an important buffer for the water supply, naturally regulating run-off and filtering groundwater that flows into the reservoirs and their tributaries. Additionally, the lands have outstanding habitat features, including wetlands, large blocks of unfragmented forest habitat, open water, vernal pools, and successional forest. GHG reductions are achieved by maintaining forest carbon stocks above the short-rotation clearcutting typical in this locality, with the project implementing significantly lower harvesting levels per acre and annually.

The watershed critical to New York’s state capital enjoyed no permanent protection before this carbon offset project.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to tackle climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other benefits:

  • Clean Water and Sanitation: The project permanently protects a total of 6,400 acres of land and water, which supplies residents and businesses with 6.6 billion gallons of water annually.
  • Life on Land: The Alcove Reservoir was one of the early sites for the reintroduction of bald eagles in New York, and there are a number of active nest sites on the properties. The reservoirs also provide outstanding habitat for migrating waterfowl.
  • Life Below Water: The protected area provides important headwater stream habitat for fish, amphibians and other aquatic species.
