THE PROJECT:

Building climate-resilient mixed forests through reforestation and natural regeneration on formerly forested areas that have been strongly damaged by the effects of climate change in recent years


GENERAL PROJECT INFORMATION

Project Type: Reforestation

Location: Germany

Project Size: 94.85 ha

Emission Reduction: 29,490.68 t CO2

Standards: ISO 14064-2, FSC


ABOUT THIS PROJECT

The project area is located in the Palatinate part of the Westerwald and has been largely damaged by storms, droughts and bark beetles since 2018. Through the establishment and long-term maintenance of climate tolerant tree species and an adapted wildlife management, it is being ensured that a climate- resilient mixed forest develops on these areas, storing carbon in the long run, providing high-quality habitat, recreational space, and promoting biodiversity.

Sustainable forest management through selective timber harvesting creates jobs and provides long-term income for the forest-owning communities. Management of the forest areas is certified according to the FSC standard.

The Re-Spire Westerwald project is the first forest carbon project in Germany been developed according to recognized principles and criteria using proven instruments of the voluntary carbon market. It offers the same quality and robustness as international offsetting projects.
