This methodology applies to project activities that reduce net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in managed forests for a specified time through harvest deferrals to extend cutting cycles. Projects using the methodology are considered under the improved forest management (IFM) subclass of extended rotation age (ERA) projects. The methodology is applicable to projects in all types of forests, including plantation forests.

Currently the methodology specifies a process for establishing a dynamic performance benchmark applicable in the United States, but it is applicable in any location where appropriate data sources and quantification techniques are available. The methodology relies on a performance method for demonstrating additionality and selecting the crediting baseline.
