Approved 29 August 2013

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions and removals generated from improving forest management practices to increase the carbon stock on land by extending the rotation age of a forest or patch of forest before harvesting. By extending the age at which trees are cut, projects increase the average carbon stock on the land and remove more emissions from the atmosphere.

This methodology is applicable to managed forests where clear cutting or patch cutting practices are implemented in the baseline.
