Family forest owners can play a big role when it comes
to sequestering more carbon to address the effects of
a changing climate. A new program seeks to create a
carbon market designed just for smallholders, which will
offset the costs of forest management and provide a
potential source of income.

TOOLS AND RESOURCES
Forest Owner Hardships After
Hurricane Michael
Despite owning the bulk of the forestland that
cleans our air and water supplies, forest family
owners may get little assistance when disaster
strikes. The Browne family of Clarksville, FL, took
their story of hardship to Capitol Hill to highlight
the urgent need for restoration of forests and the
families who steward them.

In April, Tree Farmers from across the country travelled to
Washington, D.C. to meet with congressional members
to advocate for critical forestry program funding, disaster
relief and protection of the commercial markets served by
family forest owners.
