Oregon’s Longview Ranch and the Forest’s Carbon Rights

KIMBERLY, Ore.--()--Longview Ranch, located along Central Oregon’s historic Route 19 in Kimberly, maintains 30,000 stunning acres of diverse landscape and is committed to responsible and sustainable land-use practices.

Today, Oregon’s Longview Ranch is working on a project to sell the carbon rights to its forest. This is an exciting venture that will ensure the forest is kept healthy and not clear cut for the next 40 years. Longview Ranch is working with the American Carbon Registry and a company called BlueSource, the largest environmental projects developer in the U.S., to have this in place within the next 18 months.

This means large companies will pay for the carbon rights to work with landowners to ensure the carbon they are emitting into the air has trees to process that carbon and turn it back into clean air.
