Doe Mountain Forest Management Carbon Credits
Doe Mountain is among the largest contiguously owned forested parcel in the state of Tennessee and local region. Heavy, high-grade logging practices and parcelization threatens much of this region and has for a long time. Few private recreation and wildlife conservation opportunities to this scale remain in the state.
Doe Mountain owners seek to maintain this as a natural area through the income generated from recreation opportunities (primarily ATV and mountain bike trails) and conservation activities (primarily carbon offsets) on the property. Without funding from the carbon project, alternative scenarios include intensive silvicultural practices or parcelization and sale of the forestland to for intensive management or development.
The carbon credits generated on the property provide an opportunity for individuals and organizations to offset their carbon footprint
