King County Forest Conservation, USA

Conserving 65,000 acres of existing tree canopy and providing more public parks in the state of Washington

Project Type: Natural climate solutions, Improved Forest Management

Standards: VCS

King County’s forest programme aims to conserve 65,000 acres of existing tree canopy and natural areas, and provide more public parks, biking and walking trails, and open spaces. The project reduces carbon emissions by conserving forests threatened with development ("avoided conversion") and from improved forest management on private lands in the Cascade foothills. Current testing indicates that more than 1 million tCO2e of emissions will be avoided over the project’s duration. In the first five years, the urban and rural components of King County’s Forest Carbon Program will store at least 100,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide that otherwise would have been emitted into the atmosphere.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers other benefits:

  • Life on Land: The project protects corridors for remaining elk, bears, and other wildlife in an increasingly fragmented landscape.
  • Life Below Water: By enhancing water quality in rivers and lakes, the project protects critical salmon habitat.
  • Good Health and Wellbeing: By protecting forest around urban areas, the project improves air quality and provides local communities with the diverse physical and mental health benefits of green space, and to spaces where children can play and learn outdoors.

King County in Washington state is the first local government to offer a certified carbon credit programme in both urban and rural areas
